Record Keeping Initiative Underway

In April, 2019, six small or all volunteer land trusts were chosen by the Massachusetts Land Trust Coalition and the Land Trust Alliance to participate in the Massachusetts Record Keeping Initiative, which aims to address the backlog of land trusts' records management needs at a substantially reduced cost, and to assist LTs in adopting sound records management policies and procedures.

The project started in June, and as of September, two land trusts’ records have been digitized, with work on a third to begin shortly.
