2017 IWLA National Convention

Seeking Endowment Board Candidates

If you would like to nominate yourself or another Ike for the IWLA Endowment Board of Directors, download a copy of the nomination form.

Grab your kids, the grandkids – even the neighbor's kids – and start planning a road trip to the League’s national convention. There will be something for everyone!

Enjoy the largest indoor water park in North America at the Kalahari Resorts and the color­ful, convoluted outdoor waterslides. If you’d rather stay dry, try the ropes course and zip line tour or head indoors for mini-golf and duckpin bowling. Take a camel ride and feed giraffes at the resort’s Safari Adventures Animal Park. Or pamper yourself with a visit to the onsite spa.

When it’s time for our meetings, there will be plenty to enjoy there too, including 10-hour ergonomic chairs! The convention program will focus on the League’s central issue: water. As part of that focus, we will celebrate the national launch of our Clean Water Challenge and enjoy speakers and workshops specifically geared to energize, inform, and involve every League member in achieving our shared mission.

We hope to see you at the 95th annual IWLA National Convention at the Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky, Ohio!
