Firearms Industry Trade Association Headlines the Hunting Club Conference

The NSSF – The Firearm Industry Trade Association, a longstanding and dedicated supporter of the gamebird industry, is the Title Sponsor of the 2024 NAGA Hunting Club Conference....

Their involvement, which spans a decade, has provided invaluable public relations support, research and financial sponsorship.

On Wednesday, July 17, John McNamara, NSSF's Managing Director of Member Services, will share the industry's thoughts on "How to Introduce ‘Newbies’ to Wingshooting" with attendees at the Hunting Club Conference. NSSF has been at the forefront of attracting newcomers to firearms and shooting and is well known for its First Shots, Step Outside and +ONE programs.

“Each new generation is different and requires businesses to pay attention to the best ways to reach them,” noted NAGA President Mike Martz, who owns Pennsylvania’s Martz’s Gap View Hunting Preserve. “NSSF has consistently provided quality marketing content to the overall shooting industry. This presentation should be a great learning opportunity.”

Along with McNamara, attendees will hear from more than 20 presenters during the three-day event, all experts in their respective fields. You can find the agenda here:

"Our sponsors make that model a reality, with NSSF leading the way for the third year in a row. We're so appreciative of their commitment to the gamebird industry."
