IFFF Conservation Partners & Affiliates

The International Federation of Fly Fishers has a program whereby conservation groups can become a partner or affiliate of the organization.  The information below explains each level of association with the IFFF and the forms needed to complete and submit to the International office.


Partnerships may be entered into with national, regional and state wide organizations that share common goals and interests with the Federation.  The organization will be designated a Conservation Partner on the FFF and appropriate Council websites with corresponding links.

There will be no dues for this category and the term will be indefinite until terminated by either party.

Approval of this status will be made by the IFFF Chair/President upon recommendations by the Conservation Chair, Membership Chair, appropriate Councils and Office Management.  The application and/or recommendations will include statements describing the benefits to IFFF.

This category of membership is intended for organizations that share a conservation goal and interests with the Federation.  Membership is intended for organizations such as watershed councils and conservation restoration committees who desire to participate in these activities as an affiliate of IFFF.  Fishing clubs and TU Chapters are not eligible for this category.

Annual dues for this category will be $300 per calendar year payable upon application approval. The affiliate will be eligible for IFFF and Council grants if the organization is a nonprofit 501(c) (3) entity.

Members of a Conservation Affiliate can vote and be a director and/or officer at the National and Council levels if they are individual members of FFF.

The Conservation Affiliate is not eligible to be included in the Federation’s 501(c) (3) Group Exemption or Master Insurance Policy.  The Affiliate can participate in the IFFF Group Insurance offered to IFFF Affiliate Clubs.
