Dear John,

The Land Trust Alliance is looking for its next executive vice president. And it's very possible you — or someone you know — can help us find her or him. Our ideal candidate is someone who's already recognized as a national conservation leader and can serve skillfully as the Alliance's primary liaison to the land trust community. It's a crucial role. Share this position description with your best contacts, please, and help us find the right person for the job.

– Andrew Bowman, president, Land Trust Alliance

Sue Currier, executive director of the accredited Delaware Highlands Conservancy in Pennsylvania, knows that partnerships with community groups, landowners and municipalities go a long way. For the past decade, she has worked with 40+ partners to sponsor an annual breakfast for local, state and federal officials to educate them and say thank you for their support. Learn more »

Land Trust Standards and Practices revisions are underway — and for some the process is raising questions about accreditation. Will it affect accredited land trusts and future applicants? Will it cost more? Will it take more time? We're answering your questions on our blog, and the comment period remains open via our online platform through September 15.
When the Board Walks the Plank
Board members and staff don't always agree — especially in the nonprofit world where passion and idealism can turn ordinary meetings into potential conflict. Join us tomorrow at 3 p.m. Eastern for a complimentary webinar on Directors and Officers insurance, as well as many other types of insurance, to help you plan for conflict and missteps that lead to a full-fledged lawsuit. To sign up, email us.
