Member Benefits

As a member of the All-Ohio Chapter SWCS, you will be part of a national community of fellow-AOC members learning about cutting-edge initiatives happening right here in Ohio. The AOC offers an annual full day seminar featuring top speakers discussing improvements of water quality and soil health in Ohio and beyond.

There are many volunteer leadership opportunities with the AOC to set the direction of the organization's future. If you have your own research and would like to share the results, the AOC is an excellent forum to do that! If you are a newly-minted soil and water conservation professional, membership can provide great networking opportunities to get to know established experts in the field.


Going forward, the AOC hopes to provide a publications database that will be focused on soil and water conservation research in Ohio and will provide a place for your to publish your own research. We would love to have you join us!
