Sanetti Appointed to Second Term

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack have named Stephen L. Sanetti, president and CEO of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), to serve a second term on the Wildlife and Hunting Heritage Conservation Council (WHHCC). Sanetti is one of 18 people to be appointed to the council, an advisory group established in 2010 that will help to promote and preserve America’s hunting heritage for future generations.

“I am honored again to be named to this council by Secretary Salazar and Secretary Vilsack,” said Sanetti. “I look forward to working with other distinguished appointees to secure the successful future of America’s hunting heritage. I commend Secretary Salazar and Secretary Vilsack for continuing this council and its important work.”

The council provides a forum for sportsmen and women to advise the federal government on policies related to wildlife and habitat conservation endeavors that benefit recreational hunting and wildlife resources. It also will serve to encourage partnership among the public, the sporting conservation community, the hunting and shooting sports industry, wildlife conservation organizations, the states, Native American tribes and the federal government.
