Every spring, NACD invites its members to join our staff in Washington, D.C., to promote the interests of conservation districts on Capitol Hill. This year’s NACD Fly-In was held March 20, 2018, uniting 150 conservation district officials from across the nation.
If you have any questions about the Fly-In or NACD’s advocacy efforts, contact NACD Director of Government Affairs Coleman Garrison.
Were you unable to attend? It’s still important for your senators and representatives to hear from you — visit our Grassroots Advocacy page and make your voice heard today!
The issue papers below reflect NACD’s board-adopted positions on key conservation policy priorities for this and previous Fiscal Years (FY). Participants in NACD’s Fly-In are encouraged to use these documents in their meetings with lawmakers and congressional staff.
