Treasurer’s Reports

January 2018
In 2017, we held our annual chapter meeting at Ruby’s Inn near Bryce Canyon. We had 154 members attend this meeting, down slightly (8%) from 168 attending the 2016 meeting in St. George. We had terrific participation in the raffles and silent auction and were able to award $4,500 in scholarships to 3 graduate students conducting wildlife research in Utah. We are in great financial shape heading into the 2018 annual meeting being held in Vernal. The Utah TWS Chapter is grateful for the interest and participation of its members, and we are committed to providing avenues to present wildlife-related research and fund student projects. Thanks to everyone for continuing to support the Utah Chapter of The Wildlife Society.
