Building Better

Having a leadership or management position at your District can often feel like a lonely and challenging role, but you're not alone! The Center for Technical Development, Washington State Conservation Commission, Washington Association of District Employees, and Washington Association of Conservation District have come together to bring you the Building Better: Leadership and Management Learning Community. This regular series introduces leadership related topics and provides information, insight, strategies and discussion amongst peers. 

Together we can build a better community of District leaders now and into the future!
