wordcloud_volunteer_cropGet More Out of Your Membership!

As a member of the Wisconsin Woodland Owners Association, you are already contributing to strengthening WWOA and its mission. As a passionate and involved member, you help to make our organization even greater.

Keeping engaged with WWOA widens the door to greater resources and tools for yourself and others. We want to help you grow and flourish, and so, we offer numerous opportunities for you to become more involved and get more out of your membership. WWOA works with you to ensure that your involvement is as unique as your skills and availability. Whether you have a little or a lot of time to give, WWOA has an opportunity for you!rsz

WWOA organizes many of its needs and offerings into various committees and localized chapters. Find out which chapter your woodlands are located in to get involved at a smaller, local level, or look at our list of committees to see which involvement opportunity might be best for you.  If you’re in the Stevens Point area, WWOA offers chances for your assistance in the main office, as well.


Below are a few of WWOA’s current opportunities, some are on-going and others are short-term. Click on the title of the opportunity to see a full position description. If the committee you’re interested in isn’t listed, don’t hesitate to contact us and fill out an interest form. Committees are always looking for new ideas, skills, and points of view!
