8 Ways the ATA Invest Your Dues Dollars
On April 1, a new fiscal year begins at the ATA and, if you pause to think about it, you might wonder why the calendar year doesn’t start in April as well. Why not? It marks something alive and fresh, stuff like blades of brand new grass, chilidogs at baseball games, flip-flops and spawning bass.
People emerge from their warm inside places. They get outside. They yearn to do stuff. If you’re in an urban area, the recreation programs and parks come alive. More cars in the parking lots, more dogs and joggers on the trails, more people on the soccer field. And if you know anything about the ATA and its Community Archery Strategy, you’ll know that’s where we want archery to live: among the people, readily available.
Thanks to your support through member dollars and the Trade Show, we’re putting archery and bowhunting opportunities at the heart of densely populated communities. Over the past five years, the ATA has invested and pledged nearly $2 million to bring introductory archery and bowhunting programs and shooting facilities to U.S. cities, while we also work to sustain and grow bowhunting.
With membership renewals coming along with the new fiscal year, we’d like to say thank you for your collective effort to invest in the industry that provides for us all.
