LLF has been implementing the Standards and Practices of the Land Trust Alliance (LTA) since mid-2016. To meet these expectations, LLF staff have drafted and approved several policies, increased its board accountability and reliability, and created several reserve funds to ensure that conservation easements are held and defended in perpetuity. LLF submitted its preliminary application and will submit its final application for accreditation in September of 2018. Approval as an accredited land trust will enhance the successes of the LLF mission as it required adherence to rigorous standards of professionalism and records keeping as set forth by the LTA.
If you would like to submit a public comment about LLF’s application for accreditation, you may do so up to 45 days after the application date, by October 28th, 2018. Any comment submitted must relate to the Land Trust Alliance Indicator Practices in the Standards and Practices. You can submit your comment at www.landtrustaccreditation.org

. Earning accreditation is important for The Land Learning Foundation because it is evidence that LLF has completely accepted and implemented the LTA Standards and Practices.
