On July 25, 1946 at the Morrison Hotel in Chicago, Illinois, 18 representatives from 17 states created the National Association of Soil Conservation District Governing Officials. In 1970, during the annual convention in San Francisco, the association’s name was shortened to the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD).

As part of our 75th Anniversary celebration, the 2021 NACD Summer Conservation Forum and Tour is returning to where our association was born in Chicago! NACD’s Summer Meeting will be held at:

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago – Magnificent Mile

300 E. Ohio Street | Chicago, IL  60611

The deadline to reserve rooms is Friday, July 2, 2021.

Attendees must agree to follow all local protocols, including but not limited to: mask mandates, social distancing and other protocols in effect in Chicago.

In addition, NACD is requiring a face covering for all attendees entering any meeting room being utilized for the meeting. Those not following the NACD guidelines will not be allowed entry to meetings or events. An NACD mask will be provided to each registered attendee.

As the second-largest NACD event of the year, the gathering brings together hundreds of conservation district leaders from across the nation, including tribal representatives and representatives from the U.S. territories.

The agenda includes a full NACD board meeting, a 75th Anniversary Celebration event, a conservation forum plenary session and a set of conservation-minded tours. This is a national meeting with a regional flair that offers a first-hand look at how conservation is delivered while also providing direct access to our top leaders.
