NEWTOWN, Conn. - The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce that Sportsmen's Alliance has agreed to sponsor the 2017 Industry Summit at the Bronze level. Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, Sportsmen's Alliance
is an advocacy organization that works to promote conservation and hunters' rights across the country.
"Organizations like Sportsmen's Alliance and the work they do to protect the rights of hunters and shooters are critical to the success of our industry," said Melissa Schilling, NSSF Director, Exhibitions. "We are honored to have them join as a sponsor of the Industry Summit and share their knowledge with us."
"We're extremely pleased to once again help sponsor the Industry Summit," said Evan Heusinkveld, Sportsmen's Alliance President and CEO. "NSSF and the Sportsmen's Alliance have successfully partnered on many initiatives introducing new hunters and shooters to the outdoors, and we're really looking forward to the discussions at this year's event. It's imperative that the industry does everything in its power to ensure the future of hunting and shooting sports, and the Summit is a great venue for having those conversations with industry leaders. Today's political climate is fueling more anti-hunting efforts than ever and we need to stand united and protect our passion for the outdoor heritage and conservation."
