About This Webinar

You’ve joined the board of a land trust — wonderful! What’s next? What do you need to know to translate your passion for conservation into impactful participation in your new governance role? In this webinar, you’ll take a look under the hood to learn what land trusts do, how they do it and how you fit in. Connie Manes works as a consultant with the Land Trust Alliance providing education and capacity building services, in addition to her boots-on-the-ground role as an executive director of a small community land trust. Join her to learn the lingo, connect with colleagues and understand the rich diversity, responsibility and ongoing contribution of land trusts.
