Michael Callahan Named Task Force 20/20 Leader
Newtown, CT – -(AmmoLand.com)- Former Cabela's senior executive Michael Callahan has been appointed leader and facilitator of Task Force 20/20.
Callahan brings 34 years of experience to the role, most recently serving as a consultant for Cabela's and as the company's senior vice president of business development and international operations before that.
“I'm excited and honored to have the opportunity to work with the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the members of Task Force 20/20 team and our industry on this vitally important project to meaningfully increase participation in our sports over the next five years,” said Callahan.
“Some of the best minds representing the shooting sports and hunting from across the nation have come together to focus on this effort. I look forward to working with everyone and helping to turn this enthusiasm and support into real action and positive results.”
Task Force 20/20, which was formed at the conclusion of last year's Shooting Sports Summit, has been charged with the goal of increasing participation in hunting and the shooting sports by 20 percent over the next five years. The 2009 Shooting Sports Summit is aimed at helping the Task Force reach that goal — working together, sharing ideas, taking action and holding nothing back.
