Accreditation, Organizational Development, Standards & Practices
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.
