Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation Adds Industry Leaders to 
Board of Directors
January 11, 2018 (Washington, DC) - The Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation (CSF) welcomed four industry leaders as new members to its Board of Directors in 2018.

Orlando Alvarez (President and CEO of BP Energy Company), Gary Bechtel, Mark Cherpes (President and CEO of FN America, LLC), and James Debney (President and CEO of American Outdoor Brands Corporation) join 26 other leaders from the sportsmen's community and allied industries, each of whom has made a commitment to CSF's mission of protecting and advancing hunting, angling, recreational shooting, and trapping. 

Leading the 2018 Board is Chairman Paul Miller (Adams Arms, LLC), Vice-Chairman Jason Hornady (Hornady Manufacturing), Secretary Patrick Murray (Coastal Conservation Association), and Treasurer Ralph Castner (Cabela's).

"The CSF Board of Directors includes leaders from various industries and different backgrounds, who all come together with the shared passion for CSF's mission: to advance pro-hunting and angling policies and to conserve our fish and wildlife resources for future generations," said Miller.

CSF would also like to thank outgoing Board Members for their generous contributions over the past three years, which have been instrumental to the success of the organization: Ben Carter, Bruce Culpepper (Shell Oil Company), Christian Gullott (Bridgestone Americas, Inc.), and John Larkin (JC Larkin Company LLC).


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.
