Hitting our goal of increasing hunting and target shooting participation
Let's all work together and see what we can do to hit the industry goal of increasing hunting and target shooting participation by 20% by the end of 2014.
After considering input from our TF working groups and Summit attendees in 2009, it was decided to begin to move forward by creating several "Models of Success" programs. Models of Success would boost state agency projects that have demonstrated success in increasing hunting and target shooting participation. The states who are participating own or manage projects that have demonstrated the potential for large-scale success with the ultimate goal of rolling-out the "Model" for other states to implement. The "Model" was rolled out during the 2011 Summit and we will showcase several program again in Springfield, Mass.
From its beginning in the early nineties, the Shooting Sports Summit has been fortunate to attract key decision makers from all segments of the firearms industry, conservation community and state wildlife agencies, people that can make a difference - and do make a difference. The results are clear evidence that we can shape our future.
Past Summit programs have yielded great results, launched countless positive programs and sparked many ideas throughout the community - resulting in real action that has extended well beyond NSSF. Organizations have launched new programs, redoubled their efforts, removed barriers and have created new access and opportunities to better meet the needs of sportsmen. Today, many programs now exist that were born from an idea, a conversation or a need identified at the Summit.
We appreciate your interest in the NSSF Industry Summit, and we look forward to working with you to help shape a bright future for hunting and the shooting sports. Your continued involvement will play an important role in making this event a success. This event will continue the success that has become the legacy of past Summit programs.
