NACD is now soliciting applications for breakout sessions for the 2020 Annual Meeting. Applications must be submitted by Friday, Sept. 6, 2019. Questions? Contact NACD Government Affairs Manager Eric Hansen at eric-hansen[at]

NACD offers a number of informational breakout sessions during the annual meeting, focusing on the work of districts and their partners across the country. Sessions typically run 60-90 minutes, and in most cases, showcase several speakers at 20-30 minutes each. This year, NACD is seeking proposals that fit within three themes:

  1. District Operations and Partnerships
  2. Natural Resources Policy and Protection; and
  3. Stewardship and Outreach

NACD’s breakout sessions are some of the most popular activities among attendees at the meeting. Please help us spread the word about this opportunity and consider submitting a proposal.

Proposals will be evaluated based on the innovation and quality of the proposal; its relevance to one of the themes; and the applicability to districts across the country. Preference will be given to proposals submitted by a district, state association or partner.

NACD’s 74th Annual Meeting will put heavy emphasis on innovation and how it helps deliver conservation on the ground. In cooperation with the National Conservation Planning Partnership (NCPP), the NACD meeting will feature public and private sector innovations in a wide range of fields that focus on meeting private lands conservation needs. Conservation innovation will be featured within a set of educational breakout sessions, among other activities. If your company or organization would like time at the meeting to present to NACD members about your innovative products or services that support the work of America’s conservation districts, please contact NACD Director of Development Laura Demmel at laura-demmel[at]

NACD’s 73rd Annual Meeting was held Feb. 2 – 6, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. Hosted in partnership with the Association of Texas Soil and Water Conservation Districts (ATSWCD), the 2019 Annual Meeting was hosted at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter in downtown San Antonio.

NACD’s 2019 Annual Meeting is an investment in conservation. Each year, conservation leaders from across the country gather in one place to discuss conservation policy, network with conservation partners and members of industry, and learn about the newest technologies and most relevant issues affecting natural resources management and conservation districts.
