Jeff Wieringa (JW), business manager for 3M Scientific Anglers and a long-time fly fishing industry insider, has been appointed to fill a vacant position on AFFTA’s Board of Directors. JW’s appointment was effective January 6 and will run though the September business meeting when JW and any other interested and qualified AFFTA member will run for election.
AFFTA Nominating Committee Chairman David Heller with Ross Reels USA/Ross Worldwide noted that Jeff is well know by members of the industry and committed to allocating whatever time is necessary to be a contributing member of the board. Wieringa is passionate about growing the sport and helping the IFTD show to have the same level of success it had in the “glory days”. He is exactly the type of professional we need on the Trade Development Committee.
