The Fredricksburg-Rappahannock Chapter of Izaak Walton League is currently accepting new members. We have Individual and Family memberships. Prospective members are required to attend a monthly Chapter meeting at the clubhouse and be sponsored by an existing member. The Sponser for ANY Prospective New Member, MUST be present when they come to join the Chapter and also MUST be a member! The meetings are held the first Thursday of each month at 7 PM at the Park Clubhouse. New members must submit their application and payment at least one half hour prior to the regular monthly meeting time. Applications will NOT be accepted once the meeting has started. The initiation fee and calendar year dues are payable at time of joining. All new members are required to attend a Park Safety and Rules Talk held immediately following the meeting. You must attend this talk prior to having access to the IWLA Park.
Again, the "Member Sponser", MUST be present for a new person to join!
Initiation Fee is $300. Individual Fees are $75 per year. Family memberships are $100 per year. Local Chapter membership also provides membership to the National IWLA and the Virginia State IWLA.
Also included in your membership is the Outdoor American; the award-winning quarterly magazine of the Izaak Walton League of America. Each issue is filled with articles about the conservation work of League members and in-depth coverage of broader conservation issues. The only way to get this magazine is to become a League member.

Chapter Service requirement for New Members
All new members joining the chapter after January 1, 2013 will be required to put in 20 hours of chapter service within the first year of joining. Family memberships will require both husband and wife to serve 20 hours each or a combination to total 40 hours. If this is not met, there will be a $150 fine for singles and $300 for family. If the fine is not paid is not paid, the member or members membership will be terminated at the end of their first year. The board of directors may at their discretion wave or extend time for undue circumstances.
Membership Dues Policy
Because of Chapter Dues not being paid on time and the additional costs and man-hours of these late payments to The Chapter, a new Dues Policy was approved by The Fred-Rapp Chapter Board on August 29, 2011.
