Warren Land Trust Achieves Accreditation
Friday, March 20, 2015
The Warren Land Trust has been awarded accreditation from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission (LTAC) , the result of a rigorous top to bottom review and evaluation. This mark of distinction recognizes that Warren Land Trust meets national standards for excellence in its land protection and stewardship, governance, and financial practices.
"The accreditation application process was a strenuous one, but ultimately has made us a stronger and more effective organization," said Warren Land Trust President Rebecca Neary. "We are looking forward to serving our community," she said, "and fulfilling our land conservation mission with greater transparancy and a renewed sense of purpose."
Warren Land Trust now proudly stands with just eleven other land trusts throughout Connecticut that have achieved accreditation by the LTAC, an independant program of the Land Trust Alliance. There are six accredited land trusts within the Greenprint Collaborative - Kent Land Trust, Connecticut Farmland Trust, Norfolk Land Trust, The Housatonic Valley Association, Sharon Land Trust and Warren Land Trust. Three more are undergoing the accreditation process for the first time, and others are setting their sights on accreditation in the future. Kent Land Trust, the first Land Trust in the Greenprint partnership to be accredited back in 2010, is now undergoing its reaccreditation process for another five years.
