New Great Website - Same Great Leaders Only Tools


In the coming days, Trout Unlimited will be unveiling our new website – a site that captures the passion we all feel about conservation, fishing and protecting the places we love. It makes it faster, easier, and more exciting to learn how you and TU are making a difference, and connect with other

s who share your love of our mission and our sport.

While the website is changing, the Leaders Only tools you all use will still be there for you 24/7 in the same format they’ve always been.

But… logging in to access them will be slightly different, as there will no longer be a “My TU” button in the upper right corner of the new website.

To login to the Leaders Only Tools once the new website launches, you have two options:

  1. Go to
  2. Go to, scroll to the bottom, click the green “Volunteer Leader Login” button

Once there, you’ll be asked to enter the same username and password you have always used to enter the Leaders Only Tools section and access resources such as chapter rosters, member change reports, the free bulk email tool and much more.

If you have any problems logging in to your leaders account, please email Nick Halle and he will get you squared away.

“It’s in the Tacklebox!” – New Look, Mobile-Friendly Feel to the Resources You’ve Always Used

While the Leaders Only tools section won;t be changing, you’re definitely going to see a new, fresh, and vibrant Tacklebox – the compendium of resources, how to’s, guides, best practices, and more that you have always relied on to drive your chapter’s growth.

You don’t even need to be logged in to use the Tacklebox, just go to, or from the website navigate to “Get Involved” and choose the “Volunteer Tacklebox” from the drop-down menu.

Whether you need resources to recruit and engage members, a guide on local fundraising options, conservation project planning help, or information on youth, veterans, diversity and other programs, “It’s in the Tacklebox!”

To make it easier to find what you’re looking for, we also have some great short links to get you there faster, including:

  • – All the training events, webinars and videos all in one place and sorted by topic to help you get the help you need with the click of a mouse!
  • – Have a question about insurance, need help navigating our policies, want to find templates such as waivers for youth events? It’s all here – and more.
  • – Looking to expand your youth programs, or interested in learning about the new STREAM Girls partnership with the Girl Scouts? Visit our Headwaters Youth Program resources for ideas, tips, and guides.
  • – Connecting a community of veterans through our Veterans Service Partnership is a powerful way to support those who have served  – and their families – and engage them in our mission.
  • – Growing and broadening the appeal of TU to reach new demographics is a critical component of our work. The Diversity Initiative resources can start you off with step-by-step event planning kits, examples of success from other chapters across the country, and tactics that have been proven in the field.

If you need further help, are looking to connect and talk through your ideas, opportunities, or challenges, or can’t find the resource you are looking for, you’ll find the contact information for your Volunteer Operations Staff right there in the Tacklebox too!
