TILT Applies for Renewal of Accreditation
TILT is excited to announce that it will be applying for renewal of accreditation this fall, as the organization wraps up its 10th year as an accredited land trust. 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. For TILT, being an accredited land trust represents many years of hard work and dedication, representing an ongoing commitment to conserving the natural places we all love within the greater Thousand Islands region.
As a part of the renewal process, the Land Trust Accreditation Commission invites and accepts signed, written public comments which address how the organization meets / 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-pract....

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 TILT’s application will be accepted until December 31st, 2019.
