to Seek Land Trust
Land Conservancy (RELC) is in the process of applying to receive
accreditation from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission.
Accreditation will not only strengthen RELC’s operating
practices to further secure it long-term sustainability as a local land
conservation organization, but it also will assure the public that it
operates in conformity with national quality standards adopted by the
Land Trust Accreditation Commission.
Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land
Trust Alliance, conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s
policies and programs. The
Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on
pending applications. Comments
must relate to how RELC complies with national quality standards.
These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a
land trust. For the full set of standards, see www.landtrustaccreditation.org/getting-accredited/indicator-practices.
