The Fundraising Committee is typically made up of 2 fisheries professionals, who organize, plan, and implement the fundraising activities during the Idaho AFS annual conference.


The mission of the Fundraising Committee is to raise funds for the Idaho Chapter of the American Fisheries Society.


The committee will seek to accomplish the mission through the following:

  1. Organize, solicit donations for, and host the annual social and fundraising event to be held in conjunction with the ICAFS annual meeting.
  2. Solicit and obtain corporate sponsorships and organize a trade show to be held in conjunction with the ICAFS annual meeting.
