AFFTA Introduces New Ex-Officio Board
The American Fly Fishing Trade Association’s primary mission is to promote the sustained growth of the fly fishing industry. To that end, efforts are focused on achieving three strategic objectives:
1. Growing demand for fly-fishing products by attracting an ever expanding audience to the sport.
2. Promoting better business practices and professional development opportunities for members.
3. Providing a clear, loud voice to elected officials and government agencies on issues ranging from the protection and rehabilitation of fly-fishing habitats to tax related issues important to the fly-fishing community.
To help meet these goals, The American Fly Fishing Trade Association is pleased to announce the formation of the AFFTA Ex-Officio Board. This team is made up of a diverse group of industry and non-industry business professionals who have been called on to assist the current AFFTA Board in growing the fly fishing industry. These individuals shall be non-voting, members of the Board, appointed for a 1 year term which will allow full participation in all Board discussions and committees to bring added value to AFFTA members and the industry as a whole.
