CSF and National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses Executive Council Attend Mid-Year Meeting

By Bee Frederick, Southeastern States Director

On June 26-29, the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) Executive Council met for the Executive Council Mid-Year Meeting in Lakeview, Arkansas. The Mid-year Meeting is the annual summer gathering of the Executive Council where members and Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) staff come together to review and plan programmatic and administrative tasks and receive policy updates for the NASC program.

The Council provides general support and guidance for the NASC program as a whole. Specifically, the Council assists with the development and promotion of pro-sportsmen policy positions, and facilitates the sharing of information between state caucuses, conservation partners and allied industries.

The Executive Council is comprised of 15 state legislators (12 full Members and 3 Alternates) elected by their peers to provide advice and counsel to CSF in the administration of the NASC program. The Council plays a critical role in the protection and advancement of our time-honored sporting traditions of hunting, angling, recreational shooting, and trapping, by providing guidance on the activities of NASC, bringing forward ideas for new Issue Briefs, and developing recommended guidelines for affiliated state caucuses.

NASC Executive Council President Senator Bill Heath (GA) noted the commitment and passion of the Executive Council. “The NASC Executive Council is a dedicated group of state legislators committed to advancing the NASC Program. The Mid-year meeting is always an excellent opportunity to reconnect, share successes and challenges, prepare for the NASC Sportsman-Legislator Summit, and plan for the overall betterment of the NASC Program.”

Studies conducted at both the state and federal level have found that the number of hunters and trappers have been on a generally declining trend over the past several decades. To increase recruitment, retention, and reactivation (R3) of hunters and trappers, which initiative do you think would have the greatest impact?
