Thank you to the 75+ volunteers who joined us in Illinois for the 2019 Upper Midwest Regional Rendezvous!
We had a great event sharing information, learning from one another, from partners and TU staff and developing strategies and tactics to take home to our local chapters and state councils. As you can see from Rodney Schwartz’ smiling face, we also had some outstanding steelhead and lake run brown trout fishing too!
The following resources and trainings were presented at the regional rendezvous and are linked below to allow you to share them with fellow leaders, refresh yourself, and start growing your local efforts.
Never hesitate to contact your Volunteer Operations Staff for additional help, guidance, or resources.
