The Sportfishing Summit is a Great Investment in Your Business

The Sportfishing Summit – being held October 4-7, at the Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans, La. – is the only venue where people representing the entire sportfishing community come together to discuss a wide range of issues and events that impact our industry’s future.

In fact, all ASA’s members are encouraged to attend the Summit, including the board of directors and committee meetings, in order to gain a better understanding of how ASA staff and your colleagues work on your behalf. The networking breakfasts, lunches and the Hospitality Suite also offer informal ways to discuss issues that impact your business.

You do not need to be a committee member or a board of directors member to attend the Summit. Non-members may also attend.

Go to www.ASAfishing.org/summit2016 to register, make housing arrangements and see the agenda and keynote speakers. Our annual reception and awards dinner is being held Thursday, October 6, at the beautiful National World War II Museum. The reception and dinner are included in your meeting registration.
