There are several ways to get involved with the Wabamun Watershed Management Council as we seek to maintain the health of the lake.
First, you can become a member of the council; the three classes of membership are explained below.
Second, you can donate to the council. 100% of funds donated go directly to the work of council.
Third, you can volunteer some of your time to help the WWMC do its research and get the word out.
Any Albertan with an interest in maintaining and improving the health of the lake and its ecosystem can become a general member. All you have to do is sign-up for our digital messages and newsletters by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, postal address and contact information. General members may attend any Regular, Special or Annual General Meeting of the WWMC and may vote on motions and resolutions at any Special or Annual General Meeting.
Board members are either elected from the general membership or appointed depending upon the sector they represent. Sectors include:
Watershed Residents—4 positions from summer villages and Parkland County
Government—5 positions from federal, provincial, and municipal governments
Non-Government Organizations—4 positions from environmental and recreational organizations
Industry/Business—4 positions including agriculture
Members-at-Large—7 positions elected from the general membership
If you represent one of these sectors and would like to serve on the Board of Directors, please send a message to email@example.com.
A company or organization that agrees to partner with the WWMC in achieving the Council's goals may become a Corporate Member for a donation of $100 per year. In return, corporate members will have their names and logos displayed on WWMC newsletters and at events. To become a Corporate Member send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the corporate/organization name, address and contact information. A corporate member application will be sent to you.
You can pay your minimum $100 donation online through PayPal, below, or send a cheque to the WWMC at Box 1005, Wabamun, AB T0E 2K0. Thank you.
Donations are always gratefully accepted. We are not large enough to obtain charitable status but every bit of donated money is used to advance the mission and vision of the WWMC. To donate either use the PayPal button, below, or send a cheque to the WWMC at Box 1005, Wabamun, AB T0E 2K0. Thank you!
