We’re Renewing our Accreditation

The Edisto Island Open Land Trust is happy to announce that it is currently working towards renewing our accreditation with the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs during this process. The Edisto Island Open Land Trust strongly values the accreditation program as it demonstrates our commitment to responsibly and ethically managing our organization. It is a clear and unbiased way to display our dedication to our mission to our members, volunteers, peers, and partners.

A public comment period is now open on our accreditation renewal. The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how the Edisto Island Open Land Trust 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 info@landtrustaccreditation.org. Comments on the Edisto Island Open Land Trust’s application will be most useful by April 12, 2020. Comments may also be faxed or mailed to the Land Trust Accreditation Commission at:
