THE WARREN CONSERVATOR Fall 2014
From The President’s Desk
The year 2014 has been a time of challenge, testing and arduous preparation for out attempt to receive accreditation by the National Land Trust Alliance. We submitted our formal application in April, which included a binder of 287 pages replete with documents, financial records, photographs, and evaluation of our properties and easements. We had a formal interview September 12 that required more preparation and the Board demonstrated clear understanding of our mission.
This past week, we received a set of six follow-up questions from the interview and we will respond in kind by December 12. Hopefully, we will gain formal accreditation early in March of 2015.
It should be stressed that the Board worked exceedingly hard to meet all deadlines and qualifications. We are delighted to return to normal events that the Warren land Trust was constituted to do. With that in mind, we hope you will stop by our booth at the Warren Fair in October and we are always on the lookout for new Board members. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
