Former ATA CEO and NDA Chairman, Jay McAninch, Remains on Board

FAIRFAX, Va. - (January 8, 2018) — To further serve as the guardian for wild deer conservation, the National Deer Alliance recently elected Miles Moretti, CEO of Mule Deer Foundation, as Chairman of the Board during its annual meeting held on December 19, 2017. Former Chairman of the Board, Jay McAninch, will remain on the board of directors and serve on the executive committee.

Also elected to the board for two-year terms are: Chris Dolnack of National Shooting Sports Foundation; Dan Forster with the Archery Trade Association; Brian Murphy and David Guinn of Quality Deer Management Association; Jeff Schinkten with Whitetails Unlimited, and Ron Regan of Association for Fish and Wildlife Agencies.  Dolnack, Murphy, Forster, and Steve Williams with the Wildlife Management Institute will serve on NDA’s executive committee.

“It is a great honor to serve as Chairman of the NDA Board of Directors,” said Mile Moretti. “I look forward to working on critical issues such as CWD, hunter access and continuing to grow NDA as an organization.  NDA is fast becoming the go-to organization to help states’ wildlife agencies tackle the complex deer issues in their states and supporting federal legislation to fund CWD monitoring and research.”

“This is a big year for NDA as we will continue to focus much of our time on CWD and hunter access, which are the biggest issues facing deer and hunting today,” said Nick Pinizzotto, NDA President and CEO. “Our team is committed to impacting policy that impacts our sport, and seeing to it that biological science perseveres over political science.”
