The Land Trust Accreditation program was created by the Land Trust Alliance to build and recognize strong land trusts, foster public support and help ensure the permanence of land conservation. ASA first became an accredited land trust in 2013 and was awarded a renewal in early 2019.
“Renewing our accreditation is more than compliance and paperwork; it shows ASA’s ongoing commitment to the communities we serve that we are here for the long haul,” says Renee Bouplon, ASA Associate Director. Accreditation is awarded for a five-year term. Renewal confirms that ASA is following best practices and continues to uphold the highest standards.
