American Fisheries Society


Bend, Oregon  

March, 2-6, 2020


The Oregon Chapter of the American Fisheries Society’s 56th Annual Meeting will be held March 2 – 6, 2020 at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes in Bend, Oregon. The ORAFS Annual Meeting is the premier venue for sharing fisheries science and management information with fisheries professionals from across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. We typically host more than 450 fisheries professionals!  The annual meeting showcases up to 200 technical presentations, plus many networking and mentoring opportunities. ORAFS is committed to keeping registration fees affordable to encourage participation among students and professionals from all employment levels. We are able to keep this commitment thanks to generous Annual Meeting sponsors. The sponsorships we receive from agencies, industries, and other entities constitute a large and important part of the Chapter’s support. Contributions of in-kind services (e.g. printing) and direct funding help defray meeting costs, provide support for our student programs including annual scholarships, sponsor the student-mentor social event, and provide student registration discounts and complimentary lodging for student volunteers. Sponsorships generally range from $250  to $5,000 each, and are widely recognized in print within our meeting program, on posters at the meeting registration desk, on AV displays throughout the Annual Meeting, and on the ORAFS website. Please consider sponsoring the ORAFS Annual Meeting through a tax deductible donation and help ORAFS achieve its mission to improve the conservation and sustainability of Oregon fishery resources and their aquatic ecosystems.
