Membership Drive Contest

Got trees? Chip in with a new member!

Won’t you help us increase WWOA’s visibility as an important resource for private woodland owners and by doing so, grow our membership? In celebration of WWOA’s 40th Anniversary, we are asking our members to join us in promoting our organization with family, friends, and neighbors that are fellow woodland owners.

As noted in the Winter issue of the Wisconsin Woodlands magazine, we are asking our members to help celebrate WWOA’s 40th Anniversary by sharing your reasons for joining WWOA with fellow woodland owners and encouraging them to consider membership. Give them a WWOA Brochure (contact the Office 715-346-4798 or wwoa@uwsp.edu for brochures) and share a copy of your Wisconsin Woodlands magazine, a valuable resource and a good way to introduce them to WWOA!

Remember to write your name on the WWOA Brochure’s Referred or Gift By” line before you give it to them so that when they join using the brochure, your name will automatically be entered into our Membership Drive Contest.

WWOA’s Gift Membership program is a great way to share WWOA’s benefits. Current WWOA members may give unlimited gifts of a first-year membership to new members who own land for only $25 (with payment coming from the current WWOA member). We also have an Associate membership for those interested in learning more but currently do not own woodlands – your next generation? You can donate the gift membership online on our Renew Membership page.

When you have successfully recruited a new member, it is important to mentor them. Help them get the full value of their new membership by encouraging them to join the appropriate local chapter(s) and encourage involvement in all the available WWOA activities!

The campaign started January 1st and names will be entered for the drawing through September 1st, but note that new members are welcome at any time! Member successful in recruiting or gifting new members during the 2019 membership drive will have their names entered into a drawing for one of five gift memberships. The drawing will be held at the 2019 Annual Meeting in Marshfield on September 21st. Don’t forget to write your name on the “Referred or Gift By” line of the WWOA brochure before you give it to them.

Please join us in spreading the word about WWOA and help fellow woodland owners learn more about sustainably caring for with woodlands while keeping Wisconsin’s woodlands healthy!
