PowerPoint Presentation:

B enefits of a Policy Statement on Safeguarding Within DNR - Improves the “standing” of safeguarding as a concept and furthers its acceptance as a legitimate conservation strategy. May provide opportunity for future DNR funding. Establishes standards and guidelines for potential new members. Helps coalesce member organizations around the safeguarding concept. Useful for individual member organizations soliciting awards/recognition, certifications, and grants. Can be viewed as an outgrowth of the maturation process of the GPCA. Necessary if GPCA organizes itself as a 501(c)(3) corporation. Can be an aid to fundraising
