Committees

WWOA members, won’t you share your talents and interests with our committees?  WWOA needs your volunteer efforts to be successful. Most of WWOA’s committees are open to any member.  In addition to meeting other woodland owners and having input into WWOA, just a few hours of your time a couple times a year can accomplish so much!
