Local LandTrust seeking national accreditation

The national land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. The LandTrust for Central North Carolina Inc. is pleased to announce it is applying for 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. Achieving accreditation is a significant milestone.
The LandTrust for Central North Carolina has been serving the lower Yadkin–Pee Dee region since 1995, conserving land and historic landmarks in a 10-county region. The LandTrust for Central North Carolina’s mission is to work thoughtfully and selectively with property owners to preserve the most significant natural and cultural landmarks of the region. Striving for accreditation will lead to implementation of new standards, protocols and operational systems that are designed to help the organization ensure perpetual and sustainable operations for the citizens of this region. Already recognized as one of the strongest land conservation organizations in the state, the accreditation process is designed to make effective organizations even stronger and more efficient.
The commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how The LandTrust for Central North Carolina complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust.
To learn more about the accreditation program or to submit a comment, visit www.landtrustaccreditation.org. Comments may also be faxed or mailed to the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, Attn: Public Comments: (fax) 518-587-3183; (mail) 112 Spring Street, Suite 204, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
