The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Midcoast Conservancy 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. Accreditation by the Commission is important to Midcoast Conservancy because it demonstrates that our organization is governed and operated with the highest ethical standards and using best practices. It also demonstrates to our partners, volunteers, and donors that we can be trusted with respect to the careful and respectful use of donor funds as well as partner and volunteer contributions.
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Midcoast Conservancy 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/help-and-resources/indicator-practices.
