Nevada Land Trust Seeks Accreditation
February 18, 2013 at 10:00 AM
The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Nevada Land Trust is pleased to announce it is applying for accreditation in 2013. A public comment period is now open.
The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs. “Seeking accreditation is a rigorous process that requires us to look at every aspect of our organization, from project selection to fundraising to record keeping,” states Sonya Giroux, Operations and Finance Director for Nevada Land Trust. “It’s rewarding to see how Nevada Land Trust has matured in the past fifteen years, and we’re excited for national recognition for the great conservation work we do here in Nevada.”
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Nevada Land Trust complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards see www.landtrustaccreditation.org/tips-and-tools/indicator-practices.
