“All six of these respected leaders bring a wide breadth of experience, knowledge and leadership to the board,” said RBFF President and CEO Dave Chanda in the statement. “Their insights and perspectives will be vital as RBFF looks to continue its efforts to increase fishing and boating participation across the country.”
