The DeSoto County SWCD is governed by five commissioners.
Three are elected in a district (county) wide election by landowners. Two are appointed by the Mississippi Soil and Water Conservation Commission upon recommendations of the SWCD board of commissioners.
Each District is authorized to appoint five deputy commissioners. These commissioners serve without pay to carry out a cooperative program that addresses the natural resource concerns of the District.
