During the national convention in July, the full Board of Directors of the Izaak Walton League of America voted to approve a new logo for use beginning in January 2023. That logo is shown below and can be downloaded at the link above. Plan to begin transitioning to this logo as we conclude our centennial celebrations and enter our second century of conservation leadership.

Centennial Banners

The Izaak Walton League has a FREE Centennial Banner for your chapter. The 3’x5’ full-color banner is printed on glossy white nylon suitable for indoor or outdoor use. During the League’s centennial in 2022, chapters are encouraged to display this special commemorative banner at your facility, chapterhouse or meeting place. Also use the banner at public events such as outdoor shows, fairs and conventions. Refer to the IWLA Centennial Banner Request/Order Form to receive your free banner or to purchase additional banners. Due to popular demand, we have extended the deadline for banner requests and purchases to March 31, 2022.

Centennial Conservation Project Signs

During the League’s centennial in 2022, chapters are encouraged to establish a new conservation project or enhance an existing one, and promote it in their community. The Izaak Walton League has a FREE Conservation Project Sign for your chapter. The 18”x18” heavy-duty aluminum sign is designed for placement in the community at the project site. Customized chapter name signs are available for purchase to complement the project sign. Refer to the Conservation Project Sign Request/Order Form to receive your free sign or to purchase additional signs. Offer and availability expire on June 1, 2022.

Chapter Visibility Webinar

In June 2021, League staff led a webinar on raising chapter visibility during the centennial. Learn about media outreach, using the internet to promote your chapter, and resources available from the national office. Get the slides from the presentation as a PowerPoint or as a PDF.

Media Relations

Get resources to help you build relationships with media outlets and earn press coverage for your chapter.

State Resolutions

We have prepared a model resolution for asking state legislatures to recognize Divisions and their accomplishments. State legislatures often pass such resolutions to commemorate events or celebrate achievements. With a little planning, League Divisions can raise their visibility and strengthen their reputation by securing one of these resolutions. Many state legislatures only meet for a brief period early in the year, so be sure to capitalize on this opportunity before time runs out. To get started, see the draft model State Resolution and the list of tips on how to get the resolution introduced in your state legislature.

So far, South Dakota has passed a state resolution. Several more are in the works!

Local Proclamations

Similarly, we have created a model proclamation cities and towns could use to recognize their local chapters with the declaration of an "Izaak Walton League Anniversary Day." Chapters can use the model and the included tips to prepare a draft that can be submitted to their local leaders.
