Given that the primary partner of GACD and Districts is NRCS, this proposal was offered to reorganize GACD from five groups to four groups, and to align the structure to generally coincide with the current NRCS Areas 1-4. The proposal was approved by the membership body during General Session of the 2019 Annual Meeting.
There will be four Group Trainings this fall instead of five. All Group VPs and Alternates, including Group 5 VP and Alternate, please assume your regular duties until the change officially takes place.
The reduction in groups caused some Districts to move to a new GACD group. These changes are outlined below.
