COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (May 20, 2019)
The USA Shooting Board of Directors have selected former competitive rifle shooters, USA Shooting life members, and successful business leaders Ana English and Matt Suggs for the two open Independent Director positions it had available.
The selection of these two key executives brings the USA Shooting Board of Directors current with nine filled positions. English will serve a four-year term while Suggs will carry out a two-year term. One advisory group position remains open while the USA Shooting Nominating and Governance Committee, chaired by Rick Marsh, reviews the feasibility of that position before determining a selection process or an amendment to the bylaws.
During the January 2019 BOD meeting, Chad Whittenburg, Rick Marsh and David Meltzer were seated as BOD members with Whittenburg and Marsh obtaining Chair and Vice Chair positions within the BOD. Other BOD members include Keith Sanderson, Jim Henderson, Rick Hawkins and Susan Abbott.
