TROUT UNLIMITED (TU): The National, State, and Local Organizations.
When you joined TU, you joined a national organization of 152,000 individuals in 450 local chapters whose mission is to conserve, protect and restore North America`s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds. The national organization`s financial resources are focused on federal legislative initiatives and regional legal controversies relevant to the mission. However, most of the education and stream-level grunt work is done by small groups of volunteers organized by the local chapters.
TU assigns new members to the local chapter closest to their zip code and forwards their contact information to that chapter, which is how you got on the KVCTU list. (You may request assignment to a different home chapter if you like.) All TU members in Michigan are also put on the mailing list of the Michigan Council of Trout Unlimited. The Council coordinates activities of the 23 Michigan chapters and works with other conservation organizations and agencies, including the Michigan DNR and DEQ, the US Forest Service, and county drain commissioners, in support of the mission. You will be receiving three publications keeping you informed of TU activities at the national, state, and local levels: Trout, the national TU magazine; Michigan Trout, published by the Michigan Council; and, Slacklines, our chapter newsletter.
KVCTU ACTIVITIES. In addition to our regular meetings, the club is involved in a great variety of activities throughout the year, including fishing outings and trips, stream improvement projects, conservation and fly fishing and tying education, youth camp, research and fisheries related grants, and roadside cleanup. Check your latest Slacklines or the website at www.kvctu.org for a complete calendar of events. The website also contains current news and activities, chapter history, back issues of the newsletter, photos, and more!
The chapter is totally dependent on volunteers to carry out its projects. A wide range of talents is needed, from strong backs to cerebral. All members are encouraged to investigate any activities that sound interesting or to which they feel they could make a contribution. New workers and helpers are always eagerly welcomed! Project signup sheets are generally circulated at our meetings, or contact the designated project leader or any Board member for more information. If you have ideas for other projects that we should be involved in, please bring them to the attention of a Board member. Phone numbers and email addresses for all of our officers and Board members are provided in Slacklines and on the website, and the Board`s regular meetings, held on the Thursday before the chapter meeting, are open to all members.
