About SCI Chapters
Safari Club International, as the name connotes, is an organization with an international outreach. Dedicated to "protecting the freedom to hunt and promoting wildlife conservation worldwide," SCI accomplishes this mission through their international programs, and locally with their Chapters.
The SCI Chapter network raises over $5 million dollars a year through local fundraising banquets and events. The money is spent on any number of Chapter directed projects that have a special interest for the Chapter members. Youth projects and hunts, Wounded Warrior Hunts, Humanitarian projects like feeding the hungry or helping a specific person or organization in need, conservation projects that involve working hand in hand with local wildlife agencies, sending local teachers to our American Wilderness Leadership School to help educate them about the role of hunters, and of course helping to protect the freedom to hunt by their support of like-mined political leaders.
A SCI Chapter is a lot of fun,too! The annual banquet and fundraiser each Chapter does is not only their source of revenue, it is a time to work together with other Chapter members and invite the entire community to an event where fun, food, and great people meet. Hunts, guns, merchandise, trips, and all sorts of outdoor related products can be found. These banquets are legendary in their communities.
Chapter members meet together regularly in organized meetings to discuss their mission and how best to accomplish it. These regular meetings involve not only business, but time to get together with old and new friends to talk about hunting and the things they all have in common.
The SCI Chapter network is truly the backbone of Safari Club International. It is the place where virtually all SCI leaders began their involvement, and where most keep it. Each Chapter is a voting member of the SCI Board of Directors, and as such has a real opportunity to affect the current and future path SCI will take. Truly, the best of the best reside within the Chapter ranks of SCI.
