How To Organize an Effective Hunter Education Association.
Crume, Charles T., Jr.; And Others
This guide provides information on organizing a state volunteer hunter education association, and reviews the development and accomplishments of the Kentucky Hunter Education Association. State associations use volunteer instructors to provide programs educating hunters on good sportsmanship, honesty, citizenship, self-reliance, and prevention of hunting accidents and hunting-related accidents. State-level associations also foster cooperation and coordination between state agencies and the national Hunter Education Association. The following steps are essential when organizing a hunter education association: (1) identifying the initial organizational leadership, planning a preliminary meeting with volunteers, drafting a constitution, and designing a state association logo; (2) determining how the association will interface with the state agency responsible for its control, including transfer and expenditure of funds and ownership and control of equipment; (3) identifying the purposes, goals, and objectives of the association; (4) determining how communication between the association and its members is to be conducted; (5) securing funding for organizational meetings and achieving association goals; and (6) establishing a structure that encourages leadership at the local level to meet membership needs and association goals. Appendices include an organizational chart of the Kentucky Hunter Education Association, as well as the association logo and articles of incorporation. (LP)
