GVLT Receives Re-accreditation from Land Trust Accreditation Commission
The Gallatin Valley Land Trust is in the business of conserving land forever; we’re in it for the long haul. That’s why we’re committed to excellence, transparency, and best practices when we work with landowners on conservation easements. We’re proud to announce that we have received Re-Accreditation from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. The accreditation seal is a mark of distinction in land conservation and signals that GVLT meets the highest national standards. Over the last year, GVLT staff completed a rigorous review process of our policies, procedures, finances, leadership, documentation and stewardship practices. We were told that for the first time as a land trust renewing accreditation, the commission did not request a single additional piece of information during their review. Gold star for GVLT! The accreditation seal represents our commitment to excellence, trust and permanence as we work to protect the open lands that define our landscape. 422 land trusts across 46 states have received accreditation. GVLT was first accredited in 2008 and successfully renewed in 2013. For more information on what it means to be accredited, visit www.landtrustaccreditation.org.
