We're excited for this year's meeting (the 65th Annual) and Conference because:
We listened to your feedback from last year's meeting--e.g. more training opportunities, more interactive professional development, more time with exhibitors/vendors, less of Travis B's cowboy poetry, more of Dan Butler's and all of Valerie Pufahl's--and used it is a yardstick in developing the coming 2019 Meeting Agenda (DRAFT Version).
We're taking the show on the road. We're a membership association: of the membership, for the membership. We demonstrate our commitment to the membership by recognizing we can better serve them if we travel to where they are for our annual statewide gatherings. So moving the 2019 meeting to Lewiston represents our commitment to key regions of the State that haven't felt the full force of our Association in their home territory for awhile. We are starting with North/North-Central Idaho, a region with as many outfitters and guides as any other in Idaho.
We're Going Big.
