Introducing MALT’s New Advisory Committee

By Karisma Wilson,

January 30, 2024

Two of MALT’s strategic pillars center on connecting our community and strengthening our organization. Last fall, to build on these two pillars, MALT formed an Advisory Committee. 

The purpose of the Committee is for mission-aligned representatives from our community to share their connections and experience outside of the formal scope of the MALT Board of Directors (Board). In addition, the Advisory Committee enables MALT to continue to engage long-standing volunteers who bring a wealth of knowledge to the organization and add value to our work.

“I have long supported agriculture in West Marin, and especially that of the people who have worked the land for so long…”

Dewey Livingston, Local Historian

Advisory Committee members represent Marin Agricultural Land Trust in their respective fields, acting as ambassadors while sharing details about our projects and initiatives.

With members supporting agriculture, environment, housing, and local business, the Committee embodies a diversity of experiences to help grow our network and greater organizational strategy. 

The Advisory Committee is expanding who our community includes and what supporting agriculture means — a small step towards building greater inclusivity within our organization and expanding the perspectives, voices, ideas, and direction of our future work.

“MALT is my inspiration for everything.”

Sue Conley, Co-Founder of Cowgirl Creamery and former MALT Board Member

We are tremendously grateful for the first cohort of individuals and the wealth of knowledge they bring to MALT.
