Public Notice of Accreditation

March 21, 2023

The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever. Inland Northwest Land Conservancy is pleased to announce it is applying for renewal of accreditation. A public comment period is now open.

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 Land Trust Alliance’s Accreditation process is the gold standard for national land trusts. We are proud to have been an accredited land trust for the last five years, and in undergoing re-accreditation we continue to strengthen our processes throughout the organization,” says Executive Director, Dave Schaub. “This work ultimately results in better conservation work done for the benefit of the communities we serve, stronger financial management of our donors’ generous investments, and resilient governance to lead the organization into the future.”

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Inland Northwest Land Conservancy complies with national quality standards. These standards address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust.
