It's time for ACT to renew our national accreditation as a land trust. We earned this designation five years ago by demonstrating that we adhere to the highest professional and ethical standards. These standards that cover all aspects of our work are set by the national Land Trust Accreditation Commission. The commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, is conducting an extensive review of our policies and programs.
A public comment period is now open.
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how ACT complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards see http://www.landtrustaccreditation.org/help-and-resources/indicator-practices.
To learn more about the accreditation program and to submit a comment, visit www.landtrustaccreditation.org, or email your comment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments may also be faxed or mailed to the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, Attn: Public Comments: (fax) 518-587-3183; (mail) 36 Phila Street, Suite 2, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
