As a local Suffolk chapter of the IWLA (Izaak Walton League of America), our strength comes from our members in that we can operate somewhat autonomously within the grass-roots structure or our parent state and national IWLA organizations, but with this comes a responsibility for each of our chapter members to figure out how to apply their unique skills sets in giving their resources, time, and energy towards helping our chapter meet the objectives/goals outlined by our local chapters’ board of directors. A good place to start would be to seek out existing committees upon which to serve and begin a dialog with the respective committee chair person.
To all members: we encourage you to participate in one or more Chapter activities, including our annual park cleanups, roadside cleanups, and river cleanups; and to attend our regularly scheduled monthly dinner meetings; and to help out with fundraising events.
