ASMI All-Hands Meeting Information
UFA members and friends,
UFA is headed to Sitka for our semi-annual Board meeting which runs from October 23rd to 25th at Centennial Hall (http://www.ufa-fish.org/ ). For those of you who can’t make it to the UFA meeting, hopefully we can encourage you to attend the ASMI All-Hands meeting next week in Anchorage.
The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI) will hold their annual All-Hands meeting October 28th-30th at the Hotel Captain Cook in Anchorage. The All-Hands meeting brings together a broad cross section of harvesters and processors as well as seafood market experts to discuss Alaskan seafood in the domestic and global market.
Through ASMI, various committees and the board of directors discuss opportunities and current market conditions that impact Alaska seafood sales. The All-Hands meeting provides a unique opportunity to understand current market conditions and trends for the future. Do you wonder why sockeye prices are climbing or why cod prices are down? Do you wonder what country buys the most pollock or crab? Are you considering entering a new fishery but aren't sure what the price will be next year? The All-Hands meeting is where these questions and more are discussed.
Whether you attend all or part of the meeting, you are sure to come away with a better understanding of what ASMI does for Alaska's seafood industry and what is driving prices. Attached to this email you will find an agenda for the upcoming meeting. If you can’t make it to the All-Hands meeting, we will see you at the reception!
Please join the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute for a seafood industry reception on Tuesday, Oct. 29 from 5:30 - 8 p.m. at the Hotel Captain Cook in the Mid Deck event room.
Please RSVP to Megan Metcalf at Thompson & Co. Public Relations no later than Friday, Oct. 25. You can RSVP by email or by phone at 907-561-4488.
