The Western Division and Washington-British Columbia Chapters of the American Fisheries Society are pleased to announce our upcoming 2020 Annual General Meeting to be held at the Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel in Vancouver, BC, Canada on April 13-17. This conference will be a gathering of scientists, researchers, academics, practitioners, and policymakers to discuss the boundaries and intersections that hinder our understanding and management of fisheries and aquatic systems.

We invite you to participate in this event through financial contributions and conference exhibiting opportunities. As a Sponsor, your company logo will be featured in our program, on meeting signage and on our website. As a Trade Show participant, you will have the opportunity to engage with up to 500 conference delegates.

The Chapter is sustained by sponsorships received from agencies, industries, and other groups. Your sponsorship directly supports meeting expenses including continuing education workshops, professional and student awards, and student participation. Our organization is certified non-profit; thus, all of your contributions are tax-deductible.

The conference is publicized on academic, professional and institutional list serves, social and professional networking sites, and of course through this website.

See below for details of the sponsorship levels and trade show fees. Multiple opportunities are available to fit your exposure needs.

We are also accepting contributions to our silent auction. Items such as t-shirts, books, fieldwork supplies, art, and jewelry will be on display during the meeting. All of the proceeds of the silent auction go directly to student conference travel. All donations can be made to the following address:

WA-BC Chapter of the AFS
PO BOX 9322
Spokane, WA 99209

For questions or concerns about silent auction donations, please email Tamara Knudson ([email protected]).

We look forward to hearing from you soon about your involvement in our upcoming conference. Trade show is space limited, so reserve your space now!
