Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust Stakeholder Notification/Public Notice of Application for Renewal of Accreditation
The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. The Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust 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. Successful accreditation attests that this third-party has evaluated the operations of a land trust and concluded that the organization has the processes and financial resources to provide for the long-term stewardship of conserved properties. The Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust was initially accredited in 2012 and successfully renewed that accreditation status in 2018.
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how the Highlands-Cashiers 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/help-and-resources/indicator-practices.
