2011 Tidewater Chapter Annual Meeting Plans Underway.


The 2011 Tidewater Chapter annual meeting will be held Mar. 10–12 at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) in Gloucester Point, Virginia. Our host, President Elect Leonard Machut and the planning committee already have been hard at work reserving venues offering spectacular views of the York River and sampling numerous potential delectable caterers for what promises to be an enjoyable event!  

The meeting’s location near Historic Yorktown, which is part of the “Historic Triangle” of Yorktown, Jamestown and Williamsburg, allows for numerous leisure experiences. You can stroll the Yorktown battlefields where General Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington during the Revolutionary War or climb aboard the three ships that brought the first colonists to Jamestown in 1607.     

The Thursday night welcoming “Poster Social” will be held outside the VIMS McHugh auditorium. This will be a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and colleagues and read about some of the new and exciting fisheries research being conducted by Chapter members. After a day of talks on Friday, the Awards Banquet will be held at the Yorktown Freight Shed (a brief walk from the hotel), a terminal for Baltimore steamships until 1952.

Rooms are reserved at the Duke of York Hotel. Additional lodging is available at the Comfort and Hampton Inns in Gloucester Courthouse.

Registration for the Chapter annual meeting will go from Dec. 13, 2010 to Feb. 11, 2011.  Register early & join us for a great meeting!
