Welcome

Thank you for your interest in this Trout Unlimited survey. Periodically we survey our supporters to improve our understanding of the needs and opinions of our members. Its been 7 years TU's last  major survey on the topic of women in TU. The Women's Initiative of TU is now 5 years old and completing this survey will help us to refine and develop programs central to our mission of conserving cold clean water for trout and salmon. It should take no more than 30 minutes to complete. Thank you for your time. 

If you wish to support the women's initiative with a donation, please contact Beverly Smith, VP of Volunteer Operations at Trout Unlimited (Bsmith@tu.org).

Since 2010, the initiative has encouraged women to participate in chapter activities like fishing and restoration projects, and to serve in elected positions. More than 50 women’s initiative coordinator positions has since been created. Women have become more visible as important contributors to the Trout Unlimited mission.”
