Advocacy Ambassador Pledge

With this pledge, I commit to develop relationships with my federal officials on behalf of my organization, as part of the Land Trust Alliance's Ambassadors initiative. I look forward to supporting a united land trust network, advocating for policy priorities that benefit both my conservation work, and the land trust community nationwide.

  • 1 Face-to-face meeting with the Senator/Rep. OR 2 meetings with staff,
  • 1 Site visit to a conserved property or land trust event; AND
  • 1 Follow-up communication via the press, your newsletter, or social media.
OR Follow an alternative path to success (details soon)


Please list the names and any existing relationships/ interactions you have had with the 3-5 legislators you pledge to cultivate:

*Optional-Earn extra recognition by committing to cultivate additional representatives or administration officials with ties to your organization or its service area. Explore district maps at: www.govtrack.us/congress/members/map
 

THANK YOU for committing to be an Ambassador! Your regional advocacy lead from the Land Trust Alliance will be in touch soon to discuss your goals for the year, priority issues, available resources and other ways we can work together to build and enhance these relationships. We look forward to helping to raise the profile of your organizations and all your efforts to advance land conservation. Return to Ambassadors homepage.

Please consider signing your land trust onto this letter by Independent Sector asking all members of the House to vote for the conservation tax incentive and two other charitable provisions.
