DALLAS (Oct. 12, 2015) — DSC is pleased to announce the launch of a chapter affiliation program. Under the new chapter program, like-minded conservation groups without geographical ties to the organization will be eligible to seek local DSC chapter status and be an influential part in achieving DSC’s vision of a society that values wildlife, engages in its conservation, and understands and supports the role of well-regulated hunting in the sustainable use of wild resources.
Since its start in 1982, DSC has functioned as an independent organization located in Dallas. As news of the club’s successful efforts spread, so too did its membership ranks, which swelled to more than 6,000 members around the world by the start of 2015.
“Over the last four years, DSC has given grants totaling more than $5 million to directly support its mission statement of conservation, education and protecting hunters’ rights,” DSC Executive Director Ben Carter said. “DSC’s leadership role in the conservation world combined with our consistent membership growth and record-breaking convention attendance figures led to a lot of membership interest from groups outside the Dallas area. We’re excited to begin the process of adding those groups to the DSC family.”
