Celebrate 80 Years of Conservation at CFM’s Annual Convention
January 22, 2016
The Conservation Federation of Missouri (CFM) invites you to join us at our 2016 Annual Convention. This Convention marks CFM’s 80th year of dedication to conservation.
Convention will be held at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Jefferson City the weekend of March 18-20. Join us as we honor conservation leaders with awards and take part as resource committees craft resolutions aimed at improving Missouri’s already incredible natural resources.
Each year, students from around the state gather at Convention to meet conservation professionals and learn how to make change at the political level. These students are part of the Conservation Leadership Corps (CLC). CLC students assist in creating resolutions. Last year, CFM passed 22 resolutions concerning conservation and natural resource issues across Missouri.
With over 300 attendees, our 2015 Convention was a productive, event-filled weekend spent with passionate conservationists. The banquet on Saturday evening was, as always, an exciting event. Over 300 silent auction items were donated, as well as over 40 live auction items. Through the auctions and multiple raffles that evening, CFM raised over $25,000. Attendees left the event with a renewed passion for the outdoors and new ideas for preserving our unique system of conservation.
We expect this special 80th Convention to be even better, so register now.
