Ikes Members
I wanted to share with you a proposal from the National Organization to increase the National dues by $10 a year starting in 2017. Currently $50 of the $180 Individual membership goes to pay the members IWLA State and Nationals dues.

Please take a moment and read through the email and attached documents. The national office has ased us for feedback.

Scott Arnburg
Chapter President
Dragoon Trail Chapter IWLA

Email from Ikes National office:
At the Mid-winter meeting of the Board of Directors of the Izaak Walton League, directors voted to propose a $10 increase in individual membership dues beginning with the 2017 membership year. This proposal must be voted on by the delegates at the national convention in July. At the direction of the Board, staff have prepared background materials to assist national directors and chapter leaders in discussing this issue with chapters over the coming months.

Many national directors are visiting...
