Safari Club International and Safari Club International Foundation have combined operations under Chief Executive Officer W. Laird Hamberlin, according to a joint letter by SCIF President Warren Sackman and CEO Hamberlin.
This action is being taken to streamline operations for the betterment of SCI, SCIF, potential donors and hunting at large. It is a key way for both SCI and SCIF to realize greater results from the resources both organizations use to further their respective missions.
Although both SCI and SCIF will continue as separate non-profit corporations maintaining their respective Boards of Directors, the day-to-day operations will go forward under the leadership of CEO Hamberlin.
“We will update everyone as elements of the streamlined operations are put into action,” the joint letter stated. “We are moving forward, one step at a time, and appreciate everyone’s help as both SCI and SCIF advance to the next level and beyond.”
