Stakeholder Notification/Public Comment

The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Belgrade Regional Conservation Alliance is pleased to announce it is applying for accreditation and seeking public comment. 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. The Belgrade Regional Conservation Alliance seeks accreditation to ensure that its practices meet or exceed the nationally recognized best practices.

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how the Belgrade Regional Conservation Alliance 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.

To learn more about the accreditation program and to submit a comment, visit http://www.landtrustaccreditation.org, or email your comment to info@landtrustaccreditation.org. Comments may also be faxed or mailed to the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, Attn: Public Comments: (fax) 518-587-3183; (mail) 36 Phila Street, Suite 2, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
