What is the Association of Indiana Conservancy Districts?
The AICD was organized under the Indiana Conservancy Act, IC 14-33. Since inception of the Indiana Conservancy Act in 1957, there have been over 100 conservancy districts formed in the State of Indiana, of which about 85% continue to be active districts.
The Association is an organization that exists to respond to the concerns of Conservancy Districts throughout the State of Indiana. The Association serves as an information resource and monitors the Indiana Legislature concerning proposed changes.
