December 2 – 4, 2014

Wildhorse Resort and Casino – Pendleton, Oregon


Dear Fish Culture Associates:


This is your invitation to attend the 65th Annual Northwest Fish Culture Conference (NWFCC), December 2 – 4, 2014. The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation and the Nez Perce Tribe are pleased to be hosting this event at the Wildhorse Resort and Casino in Pendleton, Oregon. We look forward to seeing you at this year’s conference and the presentations highlighting our 65th annual NWFCC theme.


This conference continues to be extremely educational and beneficial for everyone attending, presenting, and exhibiting fish culture products. Go directly to 123 Signup https://www.123signup.com/register?id=yghcf or visit the conference website  http://nwfcc2014.magix.net to register online with secure credit card payment options. We strongly encourage delegates to register and pay online, but will also accept mail-in registrations.


We recommend early conference registration as attendance is generally very strong and there are limited rooms available at the Wildhorse Resort and Casino where the conference is being held. The fee for registration is $110, which includes the social event. There will be no registration after November 21, 2014 as final numbers are needed by the hotel for planning purposes. No registrations will be accepted at the door. If you will be bringing a guest to the social they will need to buy a ticket for entry. The cost for extra tickets to the social is $30 each and can be included with the online registration.


The Wildhorse Resort and Casino is a full service hotel with restaurants, bars, and other amenities. Airport shuttle service is available (Pasco, Pendleton and Walla Walla airports). There is a block of rooms available to NWFCC delegates so be sure to mention the conference or use Booking ID #5392 when registering for a room to get the special conference rates. Additional nearby lodging facilities are listed on the Pendleton Chamber of Commerce website http://www.pendletonchamber.com/.


Attached to this letter of invitation is our contact information, the mail in registration form, and First Call for Papers which describes paper submission procedures for either oral or poster presentations. Deadline for submission is October 17 but early submission of abstracts and papers is requested.
