2018 Call for Sponsors

The Upper Columbia Salmon Recovery Board (UCSRB) is hosting the 3rd regional salmon recovery science conference on January 24 & 25, 2018 in Wenatchee, WA. The UCSRB would like to invite your organization to help sponsor the 2018 Upper Columbia Science Conference. Sponsors are a critical part of making this conference a success. This year's conference is based on the theme of “The Science of Survival” to reflect our region’s continued focus on science that benefits listed species and supports recovery efforts.  

Science plays a critical role in the implementation and evaluation of our regional salmon and steelhead recovery plan. Project implementers, scientists, and managers sharing and discussing current science is essential to our success. The collaborative framework of the Upper Columbia recovery effort also relies on science to inform decision-making. This biennial conference is an opportunity to exchange information and have dialogue on key issues.

The conference is intended for a variety of audiences including monitoring and research professionals, project sponsors, contractors, regional technical team members, elected officials, agency representatives, academics, and the public. The four objectives for the conference are to:

  1. Connect science with recovery efforts,
  2. Share and discuss information about listed species in the Upper Columbia and their habitat,
  3. Bring experts from outside the region to share ideas, and
  4. Network and interact with others working on salmon recovery throughout the region.

Because you are a recognized partner in salmon recovery, we are asking for your contribution of $500 or more to UCSRB. Contributions of $2,500 or more will receive special recognition. All sponsors will be recognized in conference materials and throughout the event. We will also organize a social event for conference participants at Pybus Public Market that is open to sponsorship. Over 350 people attended our 2016 Science Conference, and we expect even greater participation in the next one, providing a great opportunity to highlight your organization.Thank you for your consideration. Please contact Greer Maier, UCSRB Science Program Manager, at (509) 888-7219 or greer.maier@ucsrb.org to learn more about this event and how your organization can be involved. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have. A call for exhibitors will follow in the next few months and all information about the 2018 Upper Columbia Science Conference will be on our website at www.ucsrb.org.
