LandTrustSymbolCould you use some personalized assistance with a thorny land trust issue your land trust is facing? If so you’re in luck.

The Land Trust Alliance is  offering FREE coaching sessions by telephone for board members serving on all-volunteer land trust boards (those without staff or with one part-time staff member).

Services are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Conference call sessions with multiple board members are encouraged.

Land trust expert Donna Erickson will provide advice about board development, fundraising, monitoring easements, or other topics. Broach your questions about complying with Land Trust Standards and Practices or applying for accreditation.

Participants are expected to become members of the online group and to create a discussion forum post based on their coaching experience (e.g., one lesson learned, new idea or follow-up question) or other ideas/question/issues related to their boards’ work. This post must be completed within one month of the coaching session.

Erickson Consulting provides planning and analysis services to land trusts, including organizational assessments, accreditation preparation, and strategic planning. With extensive landscape planning experience, Erickson also assists land trusts in creating strategic land conservation plans. She also moderates the online group for all-volunteer land trusts on The Learning Center.   

To register for a coaching conversation, contact Donna by email or call (406) 370-0454 to schedule a time and to define the topic(s) your land trust wants to discuss).
