Executive Director’s Report
An Open Invitation
Dear MSSA Members,
I would first like to start by thanking our amazing volunteers who have made this past year a success. From chapter meetings and events, fisheries management meetings, MSSA Tournament Series events, and countless meetings to ensure the MSSA is moving forward; our member volunteers are the heart and soul of the MSSA. For that, I am extremely thankful.
As we move into 2017 I would like to invite any of you reading this message to engage and make MSSA a better organization. Any amount of time and effort will benefit the MSSA.
We have numerous committees within the MSSA that would require very little time. These committees include: Government Affairs (Legislative), Membership, Tournament, Finance, and Public Relations. Not to mention you are always welcome to attend your chapter meetings, I am positive the local chapter leaders would love to have you.
The bottom line is that the MSSA is an organization of its members, we take pride in that fact that we are run by the individuals that we represent in Annapolis. We do not take any federal or state money, we apply for zero grants. The money we raise is the money we use to protect the rights of recreational anglers and enhance our fisheries resources.
I would like to once again thank all of those who have given their time to the MSSA. I would like to invite all of our members, and those who are not members (join of course), to attend a chapter meeting and get involved.
Contact me if you are interested in any of the committees listed below, or you work in areas that may help us increase our membership and effectiveness as Maryland’s Sportfishing Advocates.

Public Relations Committee

A Sad Day on the Water
I would like to share in Frank Holden’s thoughts regarding the loss of our friends on November 19th. Over the past 10 years as Executive Director I have had the opportunity to meet these wonderful people and enjoy their passion for fishing. I will continue to keep them in my prayers and no doubt will think of them when fishing. I hope we all keep them in hearts and use this tragedy to ensure that we all come home after a day of fishing.
