Annual & Regional Events

TU Rendezvous & In-Person Events


TU continues to update our current efforts to prevent and mitigate the spread of novel coronavirus. Our efforts seek to ensure our members and host communities remain healthy in light of the increased spread of Coronavirus in the United States. 

As a result of this information, TU staff in conjunction with local council leadership has decided to postpone all regional rendezvous in 2021. We will provide additional information as updates emerge.

The safety and health of our TU members and volunteers is paramount, and until such a time as large in-person events can be held safely, we will continue to rely on the use of video conferencing for our training and networking. We are also exploring ways to support smaller in-person, outdoor events in the summer and fall of 2021.

Please stay connected to TU leader trainings at,  COVID era resources to guide your efforts and the TU Leaders Forum to share information and ideas with other leaders.

Consider inviting your Volunteer Operations staff to participate in your chapter and council board and membership events online as an additional resource in the coming months.


With the increasing cases of COVID-19 growing across the country, and the latest projections indicating widespread vaccine availability will not take place until the spring or later, Trout Unlimited has decided to cancel the 2021 Annual Meeting planned for July in Bangor, Maine.
