The International Game Fish Association (IGFA) today announced the launch of its annual Lifetime Membership campaign. All funds raised from this year’s campaign will support the association’s five 80th anniversary initiatives, focused on strengthening the IGFA’s position as a global leader in game fish conservation and promoter of ethical angling practices.
“As the dawn breaks on our 80th year, the time is right for IGFA members and anglers from around the world to demonstrate their commitment to the future of sport fishing,” said IGFA President Nehl Horton. “For this year’s campaign, we have teamed up with IGFA Trustee, renowned marine artist and conservationist Dr. Guy Harvey, and our great partners at Costa and YETI to offer an incredible Lifetime Membership package that cannot be found anywhere else.”
In addition to supporting the future of sport fishing, individuals joining as Lifetime Members during this year’s campaign will receive a personalized, limited edition lithograph of Dr. Guy Harvey’s “The Creation”; a voucher for one pair of Costasunglasses; a custom IGFA-logo YETI Rambler; a pair of IGFA performance hats; and an official IGFA Lifetime Member card, certificate and lapel pin.
“We need the support of anglers from around the world to ensure that the sport we love will continue into the future. I invite you to join me in making a commitment to the future of game fish and angling by becoming a lifetime member of the IGFA,” said IGFA Trustee and Hall of Fame Inductee, Dr. Guy Harvey. “As part of the IGFA’s exclusive Lifetime Membership package, you will receive a customized, hand-signed, limited edition lithograph of my popular piece The Creation.”
The IGFA’s Lifetime Membership campaign will run through the month of September, 2018 and packages are limited to the first 100 Lifetime Memberships purchased. The price of one IGFA Lifetime Membership is $1,500.00 USD. Memberships can be purchased as gifts and there is no age minimum to receive an IGFA Lifetime Membership.
