Benjamin J. Cassidy has been named Safari Club International's Director of Government Affairs, effective July 8. In his role, he will oversee SCI's Government Relations, Legal Advocacy and International Affairs Departments.

Cassidy joins SCI from the U.S. Department of the Interior, where he served as Senior Deputy Director for the Office of Intergovernmental and External Affairs and as Senior Policy Advisor for Water and Science.

Previously, he worked for the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action and the National Republican Congressional Committee. He has served SCI in volunteer positions at the chapter level.

"Nobody does more for conservation than hunters, and no organization represents hunters better than SCI," Cassidy said. "We have an enormous opportunity right now to work with the community of land users here and abroad toward our shared goal of conserving wildlife and wild places for generations to come. I am extremely excited to lead SCI's advocacy efforts into the future."

"We are excited to welcome Ben to our team," said SCI CEO W. Laird Hamberlin. "His experience at the highest levels of government will serve SCI well as we step out to handle the challenges that hunting faces today and in the future."

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
