What Are The Steps

 

What Are The Steps

We are available to assist you throughout the process.  It is not complex, particularly when you already share the interests that bind our Society.

  1. Become familiar with the IWFS, its resources and branches.
    Browse this web site; although much detail is available to members only, the public pages provide an understanding of our Society's scope and activities.
  2. Contact the Executive Director americas@iwfs.org to arrange contacts, receive information and obtain assistance.
  3. Plan how you would like to organize and operate as a Branch.
  4. Write a Letter of Application to IWFS Americas Inc.:
    • Intended geographic reach and name
    • Names and addresses of at least 10 founding members
    • Proposed organization structure
    • Purpose and objectives
    • First year event intentions.
  5. When approved, execute the Provisional Branch Contract.
  6. Apply for a Branch Charter after 2 successful provisional years.
