The Land Trust Operations Circuit Rider Program

In 2007, MCHT began providing consulting services for land trusts through the Land Trust Operations Circuit Rider program. Through this program, Maine Land Trust Network member land trusts throughout the state received tailored, one-to-one assistance as they developed into sustainable, efficient organizations operating in accordance with the Land Trust Standards and Practices. The program was ably staffed by Deb Chapman, who retired in the spring of 2012. Because MCHT and its Land Trust Program are undergoing a strategic planning process in 2012, it did not immediately fill this position upon Deb’s retirement and will wait until that process is completed to make any decisions regarding the future of the Circuit Rider Program. In the meantime if you need consulting assistance with organizational development issues, please contact Donna Bissett at 207-729-7366 or []( and ask for MCHT’s list of consultants. We do not endorse or attest to the quality of work done by any of these consultants, and list anyone in this general field of whom we are aware.
