On Tuesday, July 7, the New York Sportsmen’s Advisory Council (NYSAC) hosted their annual board meeting at which new leadership was elected. NYSAC was formed in 2012 by the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) in 2012 to provide on-the-ground assistance to the bipartisan and bicameral New York Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus in Albany, NY.
Over the years NYSAC has assisted in a wide-variety of event planning and policy efforts, and works to leverage the knowledge and resources of each of the member organizations and individuals to speak in a united voice on matters impacting hunting, angling, recreational shooting, and trapping in the Empire State.
At Tuesday’s meeting NYSAC members elected Bill Wilbur from the New York Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation as Chairman, and gave Rick McDermott, of the New York Crossbow Coalition the nod as Vice-Chairman. Mr. Larry Becker, the previous Chairman, was elected as Secretary.
CSF stands ready to work alongside the newly elected leadership team, and NYSAC as a whole, to protect and advance our time-honored sportsmen’s traditions in New York, and appreciates the group’s continued support of, and dedication to, the mission of the New York Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus.
