The Oak Brook Chapter is fortunate to be led by a President and Board of Directors who provide the leadership for the organization today and the direction for its conservation agenda in the future.

Our board is comprised of a group of leaders with diverse professional experience and backgrounds—from both the corporate and non-profit sectors—and is always looking for new talent with new ideas, energy, vision and commitment to the Trout Unlimited mission.

See our aggressive OBTU Strategic Plan 2016 and let us know where you’d like to contribute your time.

Please contact any officer or member of our Board of Directors regarding your interest in joining our chapter and/or one of our committees.  See our Calendar for a schedule of monthly Board meetings which are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month and open to all members.
