About This Event

Risk management isn’t something to be scared of – it’s about being prepared for “what if?” Positively managing risk will lead to greater efficiency, more land protected, better stewardship and durable organizations, in other words — ensuring conservation permanence. By assessing and managing risk, your land trust can reduce the likelihood of negative outcomes and increase the likelihood of positive ones.

The Land Trust Alliance and Gathering Waters: Wisconsin’s Alliance for Land are collaborating to help Midwestern land trusts identify and assess risks using current risk management strategies that will help you ensure the permanence of your land trust and its conserved lands.

This program is designed especially for small, medium and all-volunteer land trusts. Take the leap to learn about how to develop a risk management mindset from land trust experts to put your organization on a solid footing to face inevitable uncertainties.

The four-session virtual training series will take place weekly on consecutive Fridays, beginning Feb. 2 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Central, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern.

Contents will help to demystify and uncomplicate the risk management process. Sessions will be interactive and include a short break.

Thanks to generous funding from our partner, Gathering Waters: Wisconsin’s Alliance for Land Trusts, the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust and The Carls Foundation we are able to deliver this training at a reduced cost of $75 for Land Trust Alliance members. Estimated value is $318 per person.
