workshop - Collaborative Investment. This is the 8th Annual MFCN Workshop and the third event jointly held with IFRP. Idaho Collaborators - the November Workshop is also the IFRP annual event. Both organizations look forward to an in-person gathering of Idaho and Montana collaborators.

Travel Assistance: A successful workshop, similar to an effective collaborative group, depends on broad representation from diverse interests. IFRP recognizes that travel costs can limit attendance. Our objective is to encourage participation by offering support to offset travel costs to Missoula. If travel costs prevent your participation, please review the information in the Travel Assistance heading listed below, and submit an application for assistance.
