The Team - Meet our people.
The Team - Meet our people. Any team is only as good as the people who make up its roster, and our charitable organization is no exception! The standards are high at USSA, and we pick people who above all, have a genuine commitment to the special people and the natural resources served by our charity. Additionally, a true commitment to and understanding of our national outdoor heritage is a must for all members of the board, committee members, and management team. Each individual contributes their own unique blend of abilities and areas of expertise for a common good. The end result is a truly rewarding and effective outdoor sport wish granting charity!
USSA is fortunate to have a highly qualified "Board of Directors" to help oversee the management and direction of USSA. Throughout their years of experience in a wide range of fields, they help establish sound operating policies and lend great insight and input on major charity issues. Our board is committed to the principles of respect, compassion, and equality set forth in our USSA constitution. The board's code of ethics serves as a code of conduct for association volunteers and staff in their capacity as board members. Members of the board affirm their endorsement of the code and acknowledge their commitment to uphold its principles and obligations by accepting and retaining membership on the board without receiving any source of income from USSA.

Successful executions of day to day operations are important for a smooth running charity. Since USSA is operated by 100% volunteer labor, it is crucial to place motivated individuals in these positions since financial compensation isn't possible. Working cooperatively with the Board of Directors, USSA State Representatives, USSA Youth Outdoor Leaders, and Advisory Council, a high level of efficiency is achieved which results in our nations challenged sportsmen have their dreams come true on a daily basis!

In the day-to-day operations of USSA, there are a significant number of young people who really take hold and lend a helping hand in the operation of USSA. All too often, today's youth are criticized for being a selfish generation. We feel that is not a fair and accurate assessment and that these young people deserve recognition for their unselfish contributions to the welfare of those less fortunate. As a young person community service and involvement is an important part of anyone's resume. Get involved now!

Last, but certainly not least, this group of people is one of our favorite! They were our first teachers. They took care of us when we were sick. They fed us and consoled us when we were down. We all have one. Yes, we are talking about mothers. These caring individuals don't see what kind of suit you're wearing, but they see your heart and soul. They work tirelessly behind the scenes volunteering for a wide variety of duties.
We would like to acknowledge these special mothers, and their important roles in supporting USSA, its children, and its community service mission! THANK YOU ALL, from the bottom of our heart!!!
