Kawartha Land Trust Strategic Planning Engagement Sessions

Dear KLT Supporters,

Thanks to our volunteers, donors, partners and community at large, Kawartha Land Trust (KLT) has experienced tremendous success during our 2016-2020 Strategic Plan period. In fact the organization has already exceeded its goals and objectives. The board has initiated the preparation of a new Strategic Plan to help guide KLT into its next phase of growth while ensuring the organization continues to remain relevant and meets the expectations of our community.

We want to hear and learn from you! As one of our key supporters, your participation in this process will be extremely valuable. Your perspectives, experiences, and ideas will illuminate strengths and opportunities for KLT. Your participation will influence the shape of KLT’s future and strategic direction.

We have engaged an external consultant to facilitate a series of public engagement sessions over the coming weeks. They are committed to fostering open, honest, and meaningful discussions. We especially invite you to attend the session that is closest to where you live or visit most. Hopefully there will be a session that is convenient for you.

As many of you know, we welcomed John Kintare as KLT’s new Executive Director in February of this year. John joins us at a time of unprecedented financial stability and strong governance. We are confident that John will lead the organization into the next phase of growth with the support of a team of dedicated staff and volunteers.

On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, we thank you for your continued support of KLT. We are fortunate to have you with us during this dynamic time as we advance impactful regional conservation. I look forward to your input in KLT’s next Strategic Plan.

Warmest regards,

John Desbiens
Chair, Board of Directors
