Welcome to the new Illinois Soil & Water Conservation District Employees AssociationÂ website.
Our goal is to develop a portal for all SWCD employees to locate their ISWCDEA representatives, find forms and other useful tools and information including presentation and handouts from our various trainings.
Your ISWCDEA held its most recent meeting this morning, 7/9/15, and numerous funding, etc. concerns were brought forth. It was decided to create an online (and anonymous) survey so that we can canvas our state and find out the current FY16 status of IL SWCDs. We will allow 2 weeks for input before we compile the results and share via “il.all” email. Please submit your answers, one per District. The survey will close at noon Thursday, July 23, 2015.
Due to recent requests, we have unfortunately “shaken the dust off” two old documents; Temporarily Suspending Services (minimally updated from 2009) and the 2010 IDOA Memo reference document for instructions on consolidation.
Let me be VERY clear… your ISWCDEA does NOT support consolidation. We have dug this document back up because we were requested to do so and it is our job to provide information as requested. We, rather, fully support districts sharing employees and exhausting all other ideas/avenues first.
