Members Only Section

Welcome to NACD’s Members Only section!

Here you’ll find resources for conservation districts and state/territory associations to utilize. Additional materials are available for districts/associations that have paid their NACD annual membership dues. If your payment has not been received, you still have access to the following resources for free:

NACD Reports

NACD News Publications

NACD District Guides

District Official Training Program

Grassroots Advocacy

Stewardship and Education Materials

To access additional materials within the Members Only section, please click the “Members Only” link under the search bar and enter your NACD username and password. If your district cannot afford to pay the standard NACD membership dues, you may qualify for a reduced rate based on your hardship status. We value your participation in NACD and we want to be a part of helping make your district thrive! Districts claiming hardship dues will be asked to consider a dues payment equal to 1% of their budget (unrestricted funds only). Contact Director of Membership Kimberly Uldricks for assistance. 

Have you been searching for a PowerPoint presentation on fundraising strategies? Perhaps you’ve been looking for a guide on board recruitment, sample job descriptions or pointers on how to properly record meeting minutes. All of these resources and more are available to download for our districts who have completed their annual NACD membership payment.
