CCLT has a 12 person Public Policy Committee, elected annually by the board of directors. The committee provides the board and executive director direction on priority state and federal legislative land conservation issues, particularly in regards to conservation easement policy.
Priorities are selected annually, and the committee gives guidance on positions including legislative and administrative issues, and industry standards. The committee also works on building political support and direct communication with decision-makers for the Colorado land conservation community.
CCLT works hard to protect and enhance financial incentives such as the Colorado conservation easement tax credit for landowners who place a conservation easement on their property in perpetuity.
