Accreditation, Organizational Development, Standards & Practices

Description

This workshop is geared to land trusts that are working toward accreditation. Through a series of discussions and exercises, participants will better understand the accreditation process, including pre-application and application expectations and requirements. Land trusts will explore strategies for success, review available resources, including the Alliance’s Pathways to Accreditation website, and hear firsthand from land trusts that have gone through the process. Participants will leave with individualized action plans for their organizations, mapping out the steps they need to successfully apply for accreditation. You will find this session most helpful if attended by more than one person from your land trust, such as a staff person and a board member.

Conservation Easement Assistance Program Technical Assistance Program Terms of Use

The people of the Pennsylvania Land Trust Association envision a prosperous Pennsylvania, where communities know that their treasured green places will endure. We envision a Commonwealth where the lands that guarantee our water quality are safeguarded; where every child can safely play at a nearby park; where our productive farmland and forests are protected, securing our food and timber supply; and where wild places are preserved for wildlife and people.

Thank you to the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for supporting the Association’s conservation efforts.
