Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation Adds Conservation Leaders to Board

January 3, 2019 (Washington, DC) – The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) Board of Directors welcomed three conservation leaders in 2019 to support CSF’s mission of protecting and advancing hunting, angling, recreational shooting, and trapping in the halls of government.

Joining 30 other leaders, incoming Board members include: Tuck Beckstoffer (Tuck Beckstoffer Wines), Francisco Bergaz (Bekun, LLC, and Bervest, LLC), and Bruce Pettet (Leupold & Stevens, Inc.).

Leading the Board this year is Chairman Jason Hornady (Hornady Manufacturing), Vice-Chair Brad Johnson (United Sporting Companies), Secretary Simon Roosevelt (Olimpia Fund Management), and Treasurer Ralph Castner (Rush Creek Advisors, LLC).

“With leaders from different backgrounds and across various industries, CSF has a unique and strong Board that is proactive in its mission of protecting and advancing pro-hunting, angling, and recreational shooting policies,” said Hornady. “For 30 years, CSF has been an active partner in advancing pro-sportsmen’s legislation, and the strength of this Board continues to show our support in helping them to move the needle.”

This year’s outgoing Board members include Jeanne Mitchell (ExxonMobil) and John Green (Crossroads Strategies, LLC).

“Jeanne Mitchell and John Green were instrumental to the success of CSF over the past three years during their terms,” said CSF President Jeff Crane. “We are very grateful for their dedication of time and resources to CSF’s mission.”

Since 1989, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) has maintained a singleness of purpose that has guided the organization to become the most respected and trusted sportsmen’s organization in the political arena. CSF’s mission is to work with Congress, governors, and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping. The unique and collective force of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC), the Governors Sportsmen’s Caucus (GSC) and the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC), working closely with CSF, and with the support of major hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping organizations, serves as an unprecedented network of pro-sportsmen elected officials that advance the interests of America’s hunters and anglers.
