Dear Fellow Members,
Wowwww! I didn’t see that snow coming. I hope you’re taking advantage of the 2019 hunting season and perhaps bagging some of those trophies for the 2020 Taxidermy Competition in Stevens Point, as well as getting plenty of business to meet your own business objectives. Wishing you God’s Blessings and good fortune for the upcoming holidays. Very much looking forward to seeing you again in the New Year.
Once again, I can’t state strongly enough the gratitude for all the effort and support on behalf of members behind the scenes. There is a tremendous amount of time spent leading up-to and through a show, to make for the success we’ve long experienced. The strength and future of an organization is only as strong as its members and we’ve got the best! Thank you, to all members and especially those who lend their experience, expertise, assistance, Insight contributions, and Organizational Leadership. The unsung volunteers are the fabric that contributes to growing and sustaining a successful Organization. Thank You.
I’ve said this before but I would be remiss in not stating again. Please continue to encourage WTA strength through membership. Don’t hesitate to recommend membership to other taxidermists near you. You can surely promote the many benefits of membership including; education, tips, mentoring, artistic expertise, comradery, supply savings and discounts, competition, and professional involvement in your business. Let us know if you have a special talent or interest in getting involved and helping out on one of the committees or activities. We will once again have significant elections in 2020 so be thinking if you would like to take on a Leadership role within the Organization.
A quick reminder for those of us with a 2019 expiring Taxidermy License. Your license will expire the end of December and will need to be renewed for 2020. The DNR site has made it easier to purchase. Best wishes and good luck for the autumn hunting seasons. Be safe afield and do encourage any youth in your area to go hunting and enjoy the shooting sports at a nearby club.
Keeping the Tradition Alive,
