About IFC Membership
The role of fish and wildlife management agencies and, particularly the science of instream flows, has evolved considerably over the past 20 years and continues to evolve rapidly today. By virtue of its members’ expertise and involvement, the IFC is at the forefront of today’s issues and challenges concerning instream flow administration. The IFC does not provide a strict mandate that member agencies must adhere to. Rather, the organization functions only at the request of its members (and their associated commissions and directors) in meeting current and future challenges, and grasping new opportunities to become more effective at achieving their respective objectives. Some of the management assistance that can be made available to member agencies upon their request includes:
- Development of Proactive Stewardship Strategies
- Networking and Technical Assistance
- Agency Support / Conflict Resolution
- Program or Project Review and Evaluation
US and Canadian state, provincial, and territorial fish and wildlife agencies that are not currently IFC members can learn more about the benefits and services associated with IFC membership by contacting the President, or by contacting the relevant IFC Regional Director.
