The RBFF State Marketing Workshop would not be able to take place without the generous support of our sponsors. The Workshop is a key component of RBFF’s strategy to support state agencies in enhancing their marketing and communications capacities and provide an opportunity for them to learn from one another.

The RBFF State Marketing Workshop would not be able to take place without the generous support of our sponsors. The Workshop is a key component of RBFF’s strategy to support state agencies in enhancing their marketing and communications capacities and provide an opportunity for them to learn from one another. RBFF covers all travel expenses for up to 3 state agency representatives per state (2 R3 or Marketing Staff and 1 Director or Assistant Director).

 

All sponsor dollars are used to offset these costs to ensure that funding is not a reason why a state would miss the Workshop. Sponsorships also help provide for the most engaging and informative conference. We encourage members of the fishing and boating industries to attend the Workshop to learn more about the engaging work the states are doing in the areas of recruitment, retention and reactivation of anglers and boaters and to identify ways to partner with state agencies.

 

For more information on sponsoring or attending the Workshop, please contact RBFF Director of Partnerships & Development Rachel Auslander, at rauslander@rbff.org.
