"Pete leads the largest team of volunteers in the state of Indiana. He continually conducts committee meetings that are well-planned and organized. Pete keeps the committee organized by staying on top of the necessary paperwork and guidelines required. He submits all of the paperwork in a timely manor to keep up with the timelines. He also organizes the tracking of over 400 firearms with placement and winner designation, which includes coordination with the FFL and the winners.
Pete has attended several other Friends of NRA banquets and has helped at each of them. He always makes himself available for other committees who are seeking help or advice. In addition, Pete is a well-respected member of the State Fund Committee as he offers insight on grants in his area as well as seeks responsible grant distribution. He works diligently with local clubs to answer any questions they have about the grant process.
Pete continues to be one of the top volunteers in the state, running one of the largest events in the country. Last year he led his team to raising over $260,000 net and a 51.8% net/gross. Pete continues to push for growth through innovation and motivation. Some would sit back and ride the wave if they rose to the level that Pete and his committee have, but they haven’t. This was their highest year of fundraising, and they still continue to look for new ways to increase their efforts."
