Help Keep the Home Fires Burning – by Joe Hamilton
There have been a couple of monumental changes in my life recently. I became a grandfather on August 15, 2011, and my title with QDMA changed to Director of Development in January, 2012. My message to you faithful members of QDMA is influenced by each of my new titles.
Grandfathering is an absolute pleasure. (That's me with my grandson, Baines Hamilton Pierce, in the photo above). My work in “development” is a pleasure as well, and relates to all of the ways of securing financial support for the organization I founded in 1988.
This is a particularly exciting time for QDMA because our 25th anniversary is just around the corner. QDMA has flourished over the years for one reason: you. QDMA is the premier whitetail organization in North America, and you have brought us to this point through your continuous requests for more education and your financial support. We will continue to grow in services and membership as long as we keep the home fires burning.
We have made it as easy as possible for you to support QDMA. Below are suggested ways to get more involved and methods to contact us. Together, we can support QDMA’s mission: To ensure the future of the white-tailed deer, wildlife habitat and our hunting heritage.
Remember, the future of the whitetail is our future, too! Please consider fulfilling the role as a donor by contributing to QDMA. Your support will be greatly appreciated and used wisely to further our mission.
