Support the Chapter

Sponsors, vendors, and donors are critical to the Idaho Chapter. The Idaho Chapter is staffed entirely by volunteers and our annual meetings and annual work plans are funded entirely through sponsors, vendors fees, donations, and meeting fees. We invite you to help us continue our legacy of advancing fisheries and aquatic science and promoting the development of fisheries professionals by making a contribution to the Chapter.

Since we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, all donations are tax deductible.
