The Land Trust Alliance is pleased to announce the third edition of our popular Assessing Your Organization (AYO) publication. Revised in November 2010, we've added and revised questions in the new edition to bring it in closer alignment with the accreditation requirements, including the Application for Land Trust Accreditation, Master Attachment Checklist and Guidance Documents. We also made improvements based on the first-hand experience and feedback of many land trusts and consultants who have used the AYO to conduct Standards and Practices assessments.
If your land trust is thinking about accreditation, an assessment is an essential first step in taking stock of your policies and procedures. The Land Trust Accreditation Commission requires all applicants to complete an assessment against the full Land Trust Standards and Practices within three years of the pre-application, whether applying for the first time or renewing their accreditation.
