Public Notice that Solano Land Trust is applying for accreditation with the Land Trust Accreditation Commission

The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Solano Land Trust 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. This process will result in a thorough assessment of the policies and practices we use and ultimately a more efficient and effective way of operating. Being accredited will unite us with other land conservation organizations around the county that are governed by strong ethical practices and who are committed to sound stewardship and transaction principles which will help strengthen the land trust network.

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Solano 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 http://www.landtrustaccreditation.org/tips-and-tools/indicator-practices.
