Who should attend? Anyone committed to building effective TU chapters and councils.
What will you learn? Opportunities abound to develop your governance skills and practices, discover solutions to your leadership challenges, and increase your understanding of the key trends and coldwater conservation issues impacting that particular region. TU regional meetings are occasions to be inspired — by the work of TU staff, lessons from leaders and conversations with newfound friends.

Friday, April 5: Evening Barbecue
Join us at the Northbank Shelter at Riverfront Park, only a few yards away from the Red Lion at the Park. The Washington council and chapters will provide local salmon, brews, and wine. In addition, we will enjoy a northwest salad, cole slaw, baked beans, and the company of other TU volunteer leaders from across the West.
Sunday, April 7: Optional Day of Fishing
Although much of the fishing will be dependent on the timing of Spring runoff, there are many options from which to choose. March Browns, BWO's, Skwalas and even some Gray Drakes are expected in early April. Silver Bow Fly Shop located in Spokane Valley and Castaway Fly Fishing Shop located in nearby Coeur d'Alene, Idaho are both great resources.
