Accreditation, Organizational Development, Standards & Practices

Description

Accreditation is awarded for a five-year period at the end of which land trusts must renew their accredited status. For many land trusts, renewal is just around the corner. This interactive roundtable will provide guidance for those land trusts seeking renewal. Led by Sylvia Bates, the Alliance’s liaison to the Accreditation Commission, this session will provide a unique opportunity for land trust staff and board members to ask questions, share concerns and better prepare for the renewal process.

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.
