So you’re interested in organizing a chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America? Thank you – and welcome to the League! Once a charter is approved, a new chapter becomes part of almost a century of national prestige and conservation traditions that form the colorful history of the Izaak Walton League.
This guide will take you through the preliminary stages of organizing a chapter to becoming a full-fledged Izaak Walton League chapter.
Step 1: Organize a New Chapter
Seek at least 10 new members – people interested in conservation and outdoor recreation – and host an organization meeting to form a local chapter of the Izaak Walton League.
Step 2: Apply for a Charter
Prepare and submit required chartering paperwork. After the Izaak Walton League Executive Board reviews and approves submitted paperwork, an official confirmation and a signed chapter charter certificate will be issued to you.
Step 3: Fulfill Chapter Requirements
Upon approval of your charter, your group can begin to function as a chapter of the Izaak Walton League to fulfill your local conservation objectives in support of the League’s mission. Prepare to meet other application and annual reporting requirements.
