Join us in Asheville for the TU annual meeting.
Are you a TU member who wants to learn more about what we do and how to get more involved in shaping the future of Trout Unlimited? If so, please join us for our 2012 Annual Meeting from Sept. 12 -16, in Asheville, NC.
Staff, volunteers, and members will come together for a few days of conservation and camaraderie in shared commitment to TU's mission and vision, ensuring the future of healthy fisheries ... and the sport you love.
TU's annual meetings are unique opportunities for you to experience the wide range of everything TU does. Whether you are new to TU or have been with us for years, join us for your chance to explore what it truly means to be part of America's leading coldwater fisheries conservation organization. As TU members, we understand the vital connection between intact and healthy habitat and the opportunity to pursue trout in some of the most breathtaking locales all across America. We understand that good fishing is never an accident, and that if we are to enjoy quality trout fishing, we must invest in all the things that make good fishing happen. Finally, we understand that we must give back to the craft that gives us so much, and we know that TU is the best avenue for that contribution.
And this year, we’re going to be in Asheville, N.C., a must-see destination that boasts diverse outdoor adventures, a vibrant and inviting downtown, numerous historic and architectural attractions, and world-class trout fishing.
Annual Meeting featured activities include:
- “The State of TU” address by Chris Wood, president and CEO
- Hosted local fishing trips
- A day-long tour of local conservation projects
- Presentation of Trout Unlimited’s Annual Awards
- An evening barbeque on the grounds of the famed Biltmore Mansion
- And a fundraising banquet (proceeds will benefit the host state councils and the work they do on behalf of trout and trout fishing)
