Steve Urvan, Elected to Trust BOD
GunBroker.com Founder Elected To Hunting Heritage Trust Board
Steve Urvan, founder and President of GunBroker.com, the world's largest and most active on-line auction site for firearms and hunting and shooting sports equipment, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Hunting Heritage Trust.
Urvan has been recognized in recent years as an enthusiastic and innovative supporter of the hunting and shooting sports. GunBroker.com is a supporter of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the NRA, the Hunting Heritage Trust and a long list of hunting and conservation organizations. Urvan himself is a contributor to numerous hunting and shooting sports organizations and is an avid gun collector.
"It was an honor just to be considered for the Heritage Trust Board and an even greater honor to be elected," Urvan said. "GunBroker.com is a relative newcomer to the hunting and shooting sports community but we believe that we have added a valuable new component to the marketplace. Likewise, the Hunting Heritage Trust is a relative newcomer to the impressive list of organizations working in support of our outdoor heritage and I look forward to working with the impressive list of hunting, shooting and conservation leaders represented on the Heritage Trust Board."
GunBroker.com is a founding partner in the Hunting Heritage Trust's new "Treasures & Traditions" program whereby donated firearms and other outdoor equipment will be offered in a weekly online auction. The program, which will launch on GunBroker.com later this Spring, will generate funds for the Hunting Heritage Trust and other organizations including 4-H Shooting Sports, USA Shooting and others.
