Casey Cox has been named executive director of the Georgia Association of Conservation Districts (GACD). GACD is a grassroots non-profit organization whose mission is to advocate for the conservation of Georgia's natural resources by providing organization, leadership and a unified strategic direction to the 40 Soil and Water Conservation Districts of the State.

Cox, from Camilla, joins GACD from the Flint River Soil and Water Conservation District, where she also serves as executive director. She will lead GACD's projects, develop strategic partnerships, and support natural resource conservation efforts by working with local leaders across the state while serving as director for both organizations.

"This marks a new era for GACD," says GACD President Woody Snell. "We look forward to building a strong network among our districts and significantly advancing conservation efforts with Casey at the helm."

"Our relationship with conservation districts spans decades," said USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service State Conservationist Terrance Rudolph. "We are excited to see what this new chapter in our partnership holds and look forward to working with Casey and the GACD leadership to achieve many more decades of success."

Cox serves on the GFB Forestry Committee and chairs the Mitchell County Farm Bureau Young Farmer Committee.
