Support the Izaak Walton League of America

2015 IWLA National Convention  

Best Western Ramkota Hotel (Pierre, SD)

July 14 to July 17, 2015

South Dakota: Great Faces. Great Places
(and we don't just mean these four faces carved into Mt. Rushmore!)

Whether you are a new member or have been part of the League for decades, this is your best opportunity to meet Ikes from around the country and take part in the League's democratic process. You don't have to be an official delegate to attend the convention. It's open to EVERY League member.

In 2015, we return to Pierre, South Dakota, which is located on the Missouri River, close to several national grasslands and the Black Hills.

The South Dakota Ikes are planning plenty of outdoor fun for your visit, including possible a fishing trip (see below) and a possible tour of Mount Rushmore. 

In addition to official League business, from policy discussions to keynote speakers, other convention events include:
  • Small-group workshops where you can interact with speakers and gain practical skills on a variety of topics
  • A National Awards Luncheon to honor League members who made outstanding conservation contributions
  • The Parade of States, where chapters and divisions share the best food and drinks their states have to offer
  • An Awards Breakfast that recognizes membership recruiters and top chapter achievements
  • A dinner banquet Friday night to conclude the convention in style
Join members of the League's Sunshine Chapter for a day of pre-convention fishing onSunday, July 12 (8am to 4pm). The most popular (and plentiful) fish in this section of the Missouri River is walleye, but you'll also find smallmouth bass, Chinook salmon, and Northern pike. Visit the Fishing in South Dakota Web site for more information. 

The per-person price of $140 includes the the trip plus your rod & reel and bait. Each angler must have a South Dakota Fishing license (you can get a one-day non-resident license for $18). Visit the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Web site to purchase a fishing license online and for more details on types of available licenses. There is a limit of three anglers per boat, and South Dakota fishing regulations will apply. For more information, e-mail John Henderson.
