The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. The Land Trust for the Little Tennessee, Inc. (LTLT) is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of accreditation. 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. LTLT Executive Director, Sharon Taylor, says, “LTLT is a stronger organization for implementing and maintaining the high standards set by the Commission.”
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how LTLT complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards see http://www.landtrustaccreditation.org/tips-and-tools/indicator-practices.
