Helping to create and advance the Pennsylvania Land Trust Association’s policy agenda for more than a dozen years, the Association’s Conservation Policy Advisory Committee meets quarterly in Harrisburg. The PALTA board is now accepting nominations for new policy committee members and reappointments of existing members.
Any individual can be nominated but the nominator must be an officer or an executive staff person of a PALTA member organization. Self-nominations are welcome. Nominations are due via email no later than March 7.
The board of directors charges the Policy Advisory Committee to undertake the following activities to help PALTA increase the pace and quality of land conservation; ensure that land conservation is lasting; improve the effectiveness and efficiency of conservation efforts; and support economic activities that responsibly use the land and discourage those that do not:
- Identify policy issues potentially appropriate for PALTA deliberations and actions.
- Study and discuss potential PALTA strategies and actions, both proactively and in response to current events.
- Consider opportunities to improve public policy at all levels of government as well as private measures that could be taken by the land conservation community
- Make recommendations to the PALTA board and staff on these matters, both at the invitation of the board and staff and at the committee’s own initiative.
Committee members are appointed or reappointed by the PALTA Board.
