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 the NACD’s 75th Anniversary celebration, the 2021 NACD Summer Conservation Forum and Tour returned to where it was born – Chicago! The Association of Illinois Soil and Water Conservation Districts (AISWCD) was pleased to serve as the host state for this milestone event and the team were on hand to help celebrate – view photos from the event below!
