Delivered! Western Division 2020 Outstanding Large Chapter Award to Cal-Neva

Every year, the Western Division of the American Fisheries Society recognizes the chapters that best exemplify a commitment to the AFS mission through their work to achieve the goals of the Society’s Strategic Plan. We are extremely pleased to announce that the Cal-Neva Chapter has been named the Western Division’s 2020 Outstanding Large Chapter! (2019 award, presented in 2020). Cal-Neva last won this award in 2008 so this year’s award is truly cause for celebration! Typically, this award would be presented at the Western Division’s general annual meeting, which was scheduled to take place in Vancouver, BC. However, like our chapter meeting, the Western Division meeting was cancelled due to concerns about COVID-19, so the award was delivered directly to Chapter President Rob Titus. Congratulations to officers, committee chairs, and the entire membership for its outstanding contributions to the Society and its mission during 2019, not the least of which was its role in the planning, organization, and implementation of the joint annual meeting between AFS and The Wildlife Society (TWS) in Reno, Nevada last fall.
