There are so¬†many benefits¬†to being a¬†member of SCI¬†that it is difficult¬†to list them¬†all in one short¬†article. It is the incredible breadth and¬†depth of the¬†SCI experience that separates it from¬†other organizations in the outdoor world.¬†First, of course, are the basic member¬†benefits that include:
Your Safari Club International membership¬†gives you access to an array of¬†events, information sources and products¬†that help you maximize your hunting¬†experiences. Member Benefits include:
Optional benefits available to members:
Members-only Insurance Discounts.
Guns: Protects your Firearms and¬†accessories from loss and damage,¬†worldwide, 24/7.
Trophies: This unique program¬†insures your Trophy Collection against¬†theft and damage while providing the¬†necessary funds to re-hunt the animal.
Travel Protection: Insures you against¬†Financial Loss from trip complications¬†beyond your control, plus medical insurance¬†and an emergency Medical¬†Evacuation guarantee.
Guides & Outfitters Protection: This¬†program has been designed by SCI‚Äôs long¬†time insurance consultants in order to provide¬†specialized insurance coverage for¬†the unique risks faced by hunting guides.
Chapter membership is among the most¬†important benefits for many of us,¬†because chapters provide the face-to-face¬†camaraderie that literally brings home the¬†critical missions of SCI.
It is at the Chapter level that each of us¬†can personally make a big and direct difference.¬†It is where we work on meaningful¬†projects and where we meet to celebrate¬†the hunting traditions.
Recently, SCI has begun to reach out¬†even more than before by aligning ourselves¬†with other organizations in the outdoor¬†industry. These other organizations¬†are called Affiliates, and to date we have¬†77 Affiliate organizations that, when combined¬†with the SCI membership, represent¬†a total of almost 9 million hunters and¬†friends of hunters worldwide. Our influence¬†is growing.
This is a significant number by any¬†measure, and one that adds impact in the¬†various social and political circles when¬†SCI speaks for you, its members, and all¬†other hunters in the world.
SCI is the finest group of hunters the¬†world has ever known. Please join me in¬†getting the word out about the fantastic¬†things that we are all able to do together.
Tell your friends and fellow hunters¬†about SCI and feel free to use the information¬†above to start the conversation.¬†The more that people know about SCI, the¬†better we look to them, and the better we¬†look, the more they will understand that¬†they also need to be a part of this fantastic¬†organization.
Indeed, SCI is local, regional,¬†statewide, nationwide and worldwide.¬†SCI is everywhere. Be proud. Let us all¬†tell the world about this great organization¬†and take pride in our membership. As¬†members, we are all special. Thank you¬†for your support of the organization and¬†its critical missions.
