FY21 QUOTA LETTER AND REMITTANCE NOTICE FROM ATSWCD PRESIDENT
October 28, 2020
Conservation District Directors:
September 1, 2020 marked the start of a new fiscal year for the Association of Texas Soil and Water Conservation Districts. Our 2020 financial report showed the Association in a very good financial position and that was only possible through your support of quota payments to your organization. We certainly realize that most of the 2020 fiscal year has been unprecedented and are looking forward to the return of a more “normal” way of doing business.
We are poised to start FY 2021 off in a great way but we need your continued support. The FY 2021 quota statement is attached. The Association has worked hard to bring in supplemental sources of revenue so we can maintain our quota at previous year levels and continue to grow the organization and the support we can provide to districts . . .
We realize that as we head into 2021 there are still many unknowns concerning COVID-19 and our operations. However, I do know that with extensions of all our agreements we are ready to hit the ground running as soon as possible. Conservation of our natural resources never stops and we have never stopped working for districts and landowners. We look forward to another successful year.
Rick Schilling, ATSWCD President
