RAPID CITY, SD (May 28, 2024) – The National Bowhunter Education Foundation (NBEF) sponsors the Professional Outdoor Media Association (POMA) business conference this May at the South Carolina Waterfowl Association in Pinewood, SC. Corporate and non-profit partners connect with hunting, shooting and outdoor media and content creators at this annual event.

NBEF is sponsoring break snacks and beverages during the informative content creation sessions. These sessions are designed to help media and influencers leave the conference with content. NBEF is also providing giftbag items for attendees including its new “Bear Aware” pamphlet.

“NBEF understands the importance of supporting our industry,” explained Marilyn Bentz, NBEF Executive Director. “And we value the important role media plays in sharing beneficial messages about bowhunting and bowhunter education.”

“NBEF and their Executive Director, Marilyn Bentz have been there since the beginning of POMA. We greatly appreciate them,” said POMA Executive Director Rob Sexton. “The Annual Meeting would not even be possible without the support of our sponsors like NBEF.”

NBEF offers bowhunting instructional items, books, videos, 3-D models, apparel and more at nbef.org.
