Public Comment Period Now OpenThe Historic Virginia Land Conservancy (HVLC) is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of our accreditation and a public comment period is now open. As you likely are aware, the land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. In order to achieve accreditation, 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 Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how the Historic Virginia Land Conservancy 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 www.landtrustaccreditation.org or email your comment to email@example.com. 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.
Comments on HVLC’s application will be most useful by October 19, 2019.
