November 4, 2020 Education Committee Meeting

The next meeting of the MACD Education Committee will be November 4 at 10 am.  Due to some technical problems, one of the MACD board members on the committee requested that we go back to using the MACD Conference Call line, so the November meeting will be done via conference call. Use 1888-575-2051 and use the PIN  97861.

Based on the feedback via the survey done at last year’s area meeting, the committee has put together a “needs list” (see the survey results previously posted).  Using that information and the apparent priorities, as voiced by participants at the Education Committee meetings, we selected our priorities and have decided on action items for each.


  • Employees
    • CDB is doing monthly webinars
    • The EO is working on ongoing training/education for employees
  • Supervisors
    • Leadership training-how do we restart this effort?
    • DNRC is working on 310 training and some supervisor training for CD Supervisors and staff

Supporting Conservation Education to the Public through individual CDs

  • Rolling River Trailer
    • Creation of a waterproof User’s Guide and an online guide
    • Lease review and revision as necessary of the MACD to Sponsor leases and the Sponsor to Sub-Lessees. This will ensure that operations and liability are clear to all involved
  • Telling the CD Stories to Public/Legislators
