I've been a member of this organization for I think ten years or so. I love their magazine which has many great articles on wildlife rehabilitation. I wrote an article about squirrels for their magazines ten years ago or so. I hope to be able to make it to the next symposium.

I've been an on and off again member of IWRC for years. I was a member of IWRC around 2000-2005 and did not renew my membership for several years, and then decided to renew again in 2010-2011. I do have to say that IWRC is lacking in what it offers it's members. They do have a great mission and are a very small non-profit but I feel like a member who pays about $50 per year, really does not receive anything in return. Every now and then I may receive a member newsletter via email, but usually the information is not useful for me, and I am a currently active wildlife rehabilitator. IWRC seems to have lost its focus in the past couple of years. Around 2004 it seemed like they were focusing mostly on wildlife training, offering both in-person and online courses, and they even started a new certified wildlife rehabilitator program. Since then, it seem as if the CWR program is no longer in existence, and their training seems to have gone downhill. They do not offer as many in-person classes and they claim to be producing new online classes but it's been YEARS and not much has change d in terms of training. It looks like thye are now more focused on being more 'high tech' and 'online' with its new website, which to me doesn't offer anything useful. I don't think i'll be renewing my membership anymore.
