The Executive Council of the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) held their mid-year meeting August 7 in Seward, Alaska. The meeting focused on NASC programmatic changes and progress for the 2014 calendar year as well as sportsmen-related state and federal issues, the upcoming NASC Annual Meeting, and how the NASC can continue to grow in its role to protect and advance hunting, angling, and recreational shooting and trapping in the state legislatures across the country.
The Executive Council of NASC is a group of state sportsmen-legislators from around the country who are committed to the mission and goals of NASC and help to provide direction for the program. Elected by their legislator-colleagues to serve two year terms as the leadership of NASC, EC members assist Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation staff with policy development, sportsmen’s community engagement, program administration and media outreach within the states.
NASC Executive Council President Robin Webb (KY) noted the success of the meeting as well as the 10th Anniversary of the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses. “The mid-year meeting consistently provides a great opportunity for the NASC leadership to come together, comprehensively look at the NASC program, and work to further our mission. With 2014 being the 10th anniversary of the NASC, it is truly remarkable the growth of the program and impact state legislative sportsmen’s caucuses have around the country.”
