APOS 2015 Annual General Meeting

The 2015 Annual General Meeting and Conference will be held June 19 and 20 at the Nisku Inn. Additional details will be provided as planning efforts move forward. 


We are pleased to announce that we will be presenting our 2015 Trophy Awards in recognition of outstanding wildlife trophies taken by guided clients during 2014 on the evening of June 20th at APOS’ AGM/Convention.

This is your chance to garner bragging rights for the year! All you have to do is submit an official Boone and Crockett or Pope and Young score sheet for any game animal taken by one of your clients. Awards will be presented for all major species, both typical and non-typical. Certificates will be presented to all category winners, with custom belt buckles to be sent to the winners shortly thereafter.

The awards program is not only about outstanding trophy animals. It also recognizes outstanding contributions to APOS and the outfitted hunting industry by our members and by our partners in conservation who work for government. It’s important that we champion those who work hard for the benefits of Alberta’s wildlife and for the outfitting industry.

The Outstanding Government Service Award

APOS recognizes outstanding contributions to the outfitted hunting industry by our partners in conservation who work for government. It’s important that we champion those who work hard for the benefits of Alberta’s wildlife.

Do you know a civil servant who has gone above and beyond in support of conservation and outfitted hunting?  It may be a biologist, a conservation officer or the clerk at your local Fish & Wildlife office. Nominate someone you believe is deserving of recognition.

The 2014 Outstanding Government Service Award was presented to Bob Andrews.

Entries for all award categories must be received (by mail, fax or hand-delivered) at the APOS office no later than 4:30 p.m. on April 30, 2015
