The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) has announced the appointment of Executive Director Jamie Brown to the Land Trust Accreditation Commission’s Executive Committee.
Brown had served as one of the eighteen commissioners on the Commission for the past six years before his recent appointment to the Executive Committee of the Commission, where he will help to lead its direction and to work closely with the Land Trust Alliance Board.
The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, and independent program of the national Land Trust Alliance, promotes national quality standards for ensuring permanence in the conservation of American lands. The Commission’s seal reads: “Excellence, Trust, and Permanence.” The Commission works to ensure that the land trust community upholds these values by verifying land trusts meet standards created by the land trust community. The Commission is governed by a volunteer board from around the country.
The Lake George Land Conservancy protects the land that protects the lake for today and future generations. As a land trust that has a permanent responsibility to protect over 11,000 acres within the Lake George watershed, the LGLC must remain healthy; just like the land that the organization owns and manages and the water that its protects. Initially accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission in 2014, the LGLC has renewed its accreditation in 2020.
