Many of you are familiar with educational credits required by New York State for members of regulatory commissions, such as municipal Planning Boards and Boning Boards of Appeals. The Environmental Leaders Learning Alliance (ELLA) works with agencies like the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to deliver an online training curriculum aimed at providing members of CACs/CBs the information they need to best serve their communities. This is done through ELLA’s Conservation Accreditation Program (CAP).
We all know the responsibility we have been given by our own municipalities to submit the best scientific information we can provide to assist them in making decisions on matters of great importance. Having a system in which we can maintain a level of education, be it voluntary or mandatory, would be a tremendous asset for our groups.
