Opening ceremonies for SCIs 48th annual convention were held this morning at the Reno Sparks Convention Center.
Flanked by the SCI Executive Committee, SCI President Steve Skold gave opening remarks welcoming the assembled crowed.
Skold then introduced George Aman, President of the CIC – the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation. Aman commented on the stiff opposition hunting is receiving in European countries and how important it is that we all work together.
Following Mr. Aman’s comments, President Skold introduced Zoltan Kovacs, Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Relations of Hungary. Mr. Kovacs commented that he looked forward to working with SCI in the future.
In a show of unity, Mr. Skold then presented the two guests with ceremonial scissors for the ribbon cutting.
