NACD’s District Officials State Training Recognition Program, established in the spring of 2010, recognizes states and territories that have developed and implemented a statewide district official training program.
To be recognized under the program, states and territories must apply and self-assess that their program includes all 15 categories and 50 percent of the recommended training elements. State training programs meeting the requirements are then recognized during the next NACD Annual Meeting. To be considered for recognition, please fill out this online checklist. Please contact NACD Director of Membership Engagement, Ariel Rivers, Ph.D. with questions or to submit your state’s training materials.
Links to each state’s training information are available below as examples for others in developing or improving their district official training program. Please visit the National Association of State Conservation Agencies’ District Training webpage for more information. If you’d like to contact your state officials about developing a program, click here.
The map below shows the states that have been recognized under the program. States and territories whose curriculum meets at least 50 percent of the indicated curriculum are identified as bronze; states whose curriculum meets at least 75 percent are identified as silver; and states whose curriculum meets 100 percent of the NACD and NASCA recommended training elements are identified as gold.
