Becoming a Sables volunteer is a rewarding experience and a great way to meet people who are dedicated to preserving our hunting heritage through conservation education. The successful fundraising events that Sables accomplish every year benefit the SCIF education department and allow for the continuance of conservation education, including teaching the importance of wildlife management and the key role hunting plays in that management.
The Sables Elections and Governance Committees have worked to expand District Elector Election criteria. Now, any Sables members who reside in each US region or who live in the Canada region can run for one of the five respective District Elector positions. District Electors serve a 1-year term and are eligible to vote in the annual Sables elections. They are invited to attend Sables Governing Board and Steering Committee conference calls and meetings and are encouraged to join Sables committees.
Sables elections for Officer, Director, Elector at Large and District Elector positions will be held on Friday, May 7, 2021 at the Sables Governing Board and Steering Committee Meeting held in conjunction with SCI’s May Board of Directors’ Meeting. To run for one of the elected positions, please follow the Elections Timeline below and log in to SafariClub.org to access the Sables Election Manual where you will find candidate information, petition forms and required documents. For assistance, contact Katie Robinson by phone, 520-798-4890 or by email, Katier@safariclub.org.
