Special Offer for Women Renewing from Membership Drive
In the fall of 2012 and again in the spring of this year, TU launched two campaigns aimed at getting more women to sign up as members. In doing so, women were offered complimentary trial TU memberships over the course of the two drives. Over 2,500 women have signed up just this spring! What a great success. As part of the most recent drive, we hosted a friendly competition of chapters. For recruiting over 100 women, the 211 – Southcentral Alaska chapter came in first place. The 066 – Guadalupe River chapter in Texas came in second and the 024 – Madison-Gallatin chapter in Montana came in third. Thanks to all of you who reached out to women in your community and invited them to join TU. Thanks especially to those of you that took the extra step and used the resources in the Leaders Only Tools section of the website to reach out to these women and welcome them to your chapter.
We place a special emphasis on the renewals since our goals include both adding more women to our ranks and engaging more women in TU's leadership. In order to bump up our retention of women who joined through one of these membership drives, we're extending the renewal drive through the end of 2014. Women renew for half price, at a special $17.50 rate, and the recruiting chapter will receive $15 of that $17.50 in the form of a special rebate. This reduced-rate renewal is only available for women who joined through the complimentary trial membership drive, and it will end on Jan. 1, 2015. This special deal is found at tu.org/womenrenew. If you have any questions, please contact Heidi Oberstadt, TU's Women's Membership Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Trout Unlimited Today
Today, Trout Unlimited is a national organization with more than 150,000 volunteers organized into about 400 chapters, such as our Brodhead Chapter here in Monroe County, PA.
We are a dedicated grassroots group of conservation-mined members who share a love of fishing and a desire to protect and restore our local stream habitat by applying "the very best information and thinking available" in our conservation work for assessing the health of cold water fish species throughout our home range.
These goals require us to work with and to collaborate with other local and regional conservation partners, such as the Monroe County Conservation District, the Brodhead Watershed Association, the PA Department of Environmental Conservation, to begin to rebuild our county’s natural of watershed resiliency. Such efforts are crucial if our trout are to survive climate change and the host of threats facing them by the huge influx of residents to our area and the projected population growth for the next decade. With more localized home construction, increased loss of habitat, increased non-source point pollution, improper permitting of stream-impinging projects and weak zoning enforcement of extant regulations, our local streams are in more jeopardy today than ever before.
We here at the Brodhead Chapter clearly understand the nature of the problems which we face and the Herculean efforts that are demanded of us as we strive to serve as the stewards of our cold-water fishery, and we pledge ourselves to do everything humanly possible to make a meaningful difference for our cold water fisheries.
