Your Comments Welcome! SELT Seeks Renewal of Accreditation with the Land Trust Accreditation Commission 

seal_green_Bulleted-Horizontal-knockoutSELT is pleased to announce we are applying for renewal of accreditation with The Land Trust Accreditation Commission.  This Commission is an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance and conducts an extensive review of each applicant’s policies and programs.  Accreditation recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. SELT has been an accredited land trust since 2013.

A public comment period is now open.  SELT encourages you to submit your comments about our work directly to the Land Trust Accreditation Commission.  The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how SELT complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust. For the full list of standards please visit: 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 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 SELT’s application will be most useful by October 30, 2017.
