[+]Enlarge

Ryan Creeden was presented with the 2019 IBB Conservation Steward of the Year Award by USA Director of Union Relations Walt Ingram.

RYAN CREEDEN, DIRECTOR of Technology Services-IST and a member of L-627 (Phoenix) was awarded the 2019 IBB Conservation Steward of the Year Award by the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance (USA) for his exemplary commitment to conservation and community service.

The award recognizes volunteers from each of the USA’s charter unions who make exceptional contributions to the USA’s efforts to organize union volunteers to donate their time and unique trade skills to preserve North America’s outdoor heritage.

USA called Creeden a tireless promoter of youth shooting sports.

“Ryan led the charge to transform financial support from the USA’s Greater Kansas City Conservation Dinner committee, the Boilermakers Sporting Clays Shoot and Bank of Labor into guns, ammunition and other necessary gear to outfit the Piper High School, Kansas, trap team in 2018,” said USA Director of Union Relations Walt Ingram. “The success of his efforts and this program speak volumes; in 2019, the team roster more than doubled with over 40 youth participating.”

“Providing hands-on opportunities for youth to enjoy the fun and rewards of the shooting sports is critical to the future of hunting and recreational shooting,” said USA CEO and Executive Director Scott Vance. “Ryan's assistance in helping the Piper Trap Team grow is a testament to the great things that can happen when American union workers, unions and groups like the USA join forces to share our passion for the outdoors with the next generation of hunters and recreational shooters."

The Conservation Steward of the Year selection process begins with the nomination of potential recipients by peers or union leadership. From this pool of nominees, USA staff select individuals who have had the greatest impact on the USA’s mission, represented their unions in the most exemplary fashion, and made the biggest difference in their local community.
