Torbjörn Lindskog appointed as new President of WFSA

The incoming President accepted his new role and thanked his predecessor Mr. Herbert Keusgen.

On March 2, 2017, in Nuremberg, in conjunction with the International Trade Fair for Hunting and Sport Shooting (IWA), the World Forum on Shooting Activities (WFSA) held its annual General Assembly.

The WFSA is an international association of national and regional hunting, shooting, and industry organisations. Founded in 1996, the WFSA has members all over the world, and represents over one hundred million hunters and sport shooters on six continents. The WFSA is an official United Nations Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) recognized by the Economic and Social Council of the UN General Assembly. AFEMS, through its President Mr. Torbjörn Lindskog, serves as Executive Member of the Forum.

On that occasion, Mr. Lindskog was nominated and unanimously elected as President of WFSA, succeeding the outgoing President Mr. Herbert Keusgen. The incoming President Torbjörn Lindskog accepted his new role thanking his predecessor and all WFSA members, with the following address:

“It is with great honour that I accept the nomination of President of the World Forum on Shooting Activities. I am humbled and privileged to assume this new role. I am deeply grateful to my predecessor, Mr. Herbert Keusgen, for his leadership and outstanding contributions to WFSA during his presidency, and all the members of the Forum. I am inspired by Mr. Keusgen’s commitment to WFSA and all of his achievements. I look forward to continuing this important work towards fulfilling the mission of WFSA" - Mr. Lindskog said.

AFEMS is particularly proud of such a prestigious acknowledgement which testifies the association’s primary role at both European and International level, and would like to wish good luck to President Lindskog for his new appointment.
