RAW exists because our colleagues are willing to step up and take on the task of hosting each year. Typically, potential hosts will pitch their facilities to the conference crowd to be voted on for two years hence. With the extended gap in RAW’s, we took the opportunity to offer up hosts for both 2023 and 2024. From those elections we have:
2023 will be hosted by The Virginia Aquarium in Virginia Beach. Congratulations to Skylar Snowden for offering to host only one year out!
2024 will be hosted by the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington. Congratulations to Chris Spaulding for offering to host the first RAW in the Pacific Northwest.
So get your budgets aligned and your beer-goggles calibrated to join us for the next opportunities to reconnect with colleagues and learn the most innovative lessons in aquatic expertise.
