Volunteer Opportunities

Get 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!

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 opportunities, some are on-going and others are short-term. On-going opportunities that are available are marked with a -join while short-term opportunities that are currently available are marked with an -open.  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! If a short-term position you’re interested in is already filled, don’t worry! Many volunteer positions are annually occurring.


To see a full list of WWOA’s committees please visit our Committee page.

Fundraising Committee 

Help keep WWOA’s funds rising! Team up with other WWOA members to coordinate the annual fundraiser and the year-end appeal for donations. Share your ideas with us and see what you can do to help keep WWOA’s funds growing, so we can continue supporting our members and mission.

Gift Shop Committee

At WWOA’s gift shop you can find an assortment of items from clothing and books to playing cards and signs. The best part? All of the proceeds go right back into supporting WWOA programs! Help choose and design items you think should be offered in our shop. Normally the gift shop runs online, but functions in person at meetings and conferences and is a great way to talk to other members. We’ll also be looking for item ideas to make WWOA’s approaching 40th anniversary special.

Website Committee  

  • Website Committee Member -join

    Do you consider yourself a little more tech savvy? Interested in the maintenance of our Facebook page and website?

Maybe you consider yourself a little less tech savvy? That’s great, too! We need people proof read the website for spelling and grammar errors, and make sure links posted in on Resources page are up to date. The majority of work can be done from home on your personal computer; just join us at the committee’s up to three meetings per year in the Stevens Point area.
