Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- Members of the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) elected members of the 2011-2013 Executive Council last week during the Seventh Annual NASC Sportsman-Legislator Summit in Point Clear, Alabama.

“The NASC Executive Council provides vital assistance to the state caucuses, arming them to make a big difference at the state level on a variety of issues,” said CSF States Director Bethany O’Donovan.
New members elected to serve are Rep. Gary Hayzlett of Kansas, Sen. Bill Heath of Georgia, Rep. Jerry Weiers of Arizona and alternates were Rep. Craig Miner of Connecticut and Rep. Randy Stewart of Arkansas.
Rep. Pitts was re-elected to his second term as President of the NASC Executive Council. Sen. Webb was selected as Vice-President and Rep. Phelps as Secretary.
“I look forward to the next two years of assisting my fellow legislators in educating and assisting them on issues that are important to their sporting constituents and protect sportsmen’s interests through advancing pro-sportsmen issues and protecting against attacks from the anti-hunting and fishing community,” said Pitts.
The NASC Executive Council provides advice and counsel to the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation and its state program, the NASC. The Executive Council assists with the establishment and promotion of pro-sportsmen ideas as well as facilitates sharing information between state caucuses, conservation partners and allied industries, and ensures NASC provides services to the 38 individual state caucuses.
The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2009. Throughout this time, CSF has maintained a singleness of purpose that has guided the organization to become the most respected and trusted hunting and fishing organization in the political arena.
