Promoting the enjoyment, study, and conservation of Wisconsin's birds.

WSO issues a public call for volunteer leaders



The Wisconsin Society for Ornithology is seeking volunteer leaders to join its Board Of Directors. WSO’s mission is to promote the study, enjoyment and conservation of Wisconsin’s birds. We are looking for new directors who share our passion for these activities and for building a future where birds are protected and thriving.

The WSO board is seeking candidates who have prior experience serving on a nonprofit board; who possess legal, accounting or scientific expertise; who are willing to serve on its finance, governance and human resource committees; who will add to the board’s diversity.

The Board is a working body. All board members are expected to attend quarterly board meetings (either virtually or in person), to actively work on at least one board committee, and to assist in raising funds for the WSO. Board members serve three-year renewable terms.

We will be accepting applications until Feb. 29 and will conduct interviews before the full board votes to elect new board members.
