The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Katawba Valley Land Trust (KVLT) is pleased to announce it is applying for accreditation. A public comment period is now open.
The Land Trust Accreditation Commission (Commission), an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs. Achieving accreditation means it is important to the KVLT Board and staff to conduct all of our conservation projects in a professional manner and in compliance with National standards.
The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how KVLT 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.
