The Arkansas Chapter of the American Fisheries Society and 2013 AFS President John Boreman cordially invite you to attend next year’s Annual Meeting, September 8-12, 2013, in the Natural State. The meeting theme is Preparing for the Challenges Ahead.
Little Rock, nestled in the heart of the Natural State, offers down-home hospitality with big city flair. The Marriott Hotel in downtown Little Rock hosts the event while the AFS Technical Program and other meeting events will be held at the adjacent Statehouse Convention Center. The Statehouse Convention Center is in Little Rock’s River Market district, which hosts abundant cultural, entertainment and dining options. Little Rock also offers excellent trolley service for nearby attractions. For those interested in an extended visit, the “Natural State” offers world-class fishing, hiking, whitewater, and cultural experiences. Arkansas also offers excellent state and national parks ranging from the Crater of Diamonds State Park, the world’s only public diamond mine, to the Buffalo River National Park, America’s first national river.
The 2013 AFS Annual Meeting will bring professionals together to network and share knowledge in fisheries science and management. Speakers will present a broad range of topics at the plenary session, technical symposia, and contributed oral and poster sessions. An array of continuing education courses will also be offered
We hope you will plan on coming to Little Rock to partake in hospitality, friendship, networking and education. You won’t be disappointed. Your attendance at the 143rd Annual Meeting will help in “Preparing for the Challenges Ahead”.
