During the week of August 5, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) hosted a booth at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Annual Summit in Nashville, Tennessee.
CSF staff and National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) Executive Council members interacted with state legislators, legislative staffers, and various policy professionals from across the country to promote NASC and educate attendees about the importance of economic and conservation funding provided by sportsmen and women.
NASC Executive Council members Senator Mike Bell (TN), Representative Bill Rehm (NM), and Senator Robin Webb (KY) joined CSF staff to discuss the benefits of the NASC program and encouraging legislators to join their respective state legislative sportsmen’s caucuses.
Sen. Webb said, “It was a privilege promoting the NASC network and the importance of state legislators working together to protect sporting traditions and support our country’s sportsmen and women.”
CSF’s Western States Coordinator Aoibheann Cline, Appalachian States Manager John Culclasure, and New England States Coordinator Joseph Mullin represented CSF at the NCSL Annual Summit.
