DSC welcomes the sixth group to join its chapter affiliate program – DSC New Mexico. The new chapter has come together to join DSC in their 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.
“Our family continues to grow as more and more people recognize DSC as one of the prominent groups in wildlife conservation,” said DSC Chapter Development Coordinator Kim Rappleye. “New Mexico is full of some of the most dedicated hunters and conservationists and DSC is honoured that they chose to join us in our efforts to protect hunting and wildlife.”
DSC New Mexico encompasses the entire state, which has 60 DSC members, including 15 Life Members. The new chapter will begin adding members throughout its first year and will host a chapter convention in late spring or early summer of 2017 at the Albuquerque Convention Center.
The new chapter offers sportsmen and women an avenue to come together in a variety of events, such as social outings, fundraising shoots and youth educational days.
“We are looking forward to this opportunity to expand the vision of DSC throughout New Mexico,” said DSC New Mexico President David Reese. “DSC brings resources, influence and opportunities to help cast our voice into conversations and policymaking pertaining to wildlife, wild places and the future of hunting.”
DSC New Mexico joins DSC Northeast, Lubbock Sportsman’s Club, DSC Austin, DSC South Texas and DSC Permian Basin in a network of ardent hunters-conservationists. The new chapter helps connect individuals without geographic ties together to achieve the club’s mission. DSC has more than 6,000 members worldwide.
