TI Land Trust seeking public feedback for reaccreditation


CLAYTON — The Thousand Islands Land Trust is seeking public feedback to renew its accreditation and maintain its status as an organization that meets a national standard of excellence.

“Accreditation indicates that TILT conducts its business with the highest standards possible and assures our donors, supporters and neighbors that the land trust is committed to its long-term responsibilities,” Jake Tibbles, TILT’s executive director, said in a news release.

Every five years, accredited organizations are required to prove that they have been in compliance with the Land Trust Accreditation Commission’s guidelines that address the ethical and technical operation of a land trust.

Signed, written comments regarding how well TILT meets these standards can be submitted to the accreditation commission by May 30 by email at, fax at (518) 587-3183, or mail to: Attn: Public Comments, 36 Phila St., Suite 2, Saratoga Springs, N.Y. 12866.
