We look forward to a great conference.  For further information or to register, go to the MASWCD web site at www.maswcd.net and click on the Conference link. 
Text Box: Registration for the Training Conference is still available on-line until November 23.  After November 23 registration will be handled at the conference.
 
The cut-off date for the hotel room block was November 1, however, there are still rooms available as our group is pretty much the only ones at the hotel during those dates.
 
Please plan to attend the Conservation Partner Forum scheduled for Tuesday morning at 8:00 a.m.  This Forum will have MASWCD, Employees Association, DNR, NRCS, Extension, MDC, and the Commission all together to discuss issues brought 
Text Box: forward.  Rose Marie Hopkins will be facilitating this Forum and has asked for everyone involved to submit their top three priority issues or concerns for discussion.  Please e-mail those items to Peggy Lemons at peggy. lemons@swcd.mo.gov.
 
DNR will reimburse the cost of registration, hotel and meals, (for Monday through Wednesday), for all Supervisors who attend the Conference.  Those who stay on Sunday evening can take these expenses from Local funds or the Administrative Fund, or the Other Personnel Fund for District Employees.
