FTA Woman and Youth Event-Cancelled

The Florida Trappers Association(FTA) website did not ever reflect that the Woman and Youth trapper training event for FTA is a "Beyond BOW's" organization event. floridatrapper.org does not have a, nor is a "Beyond BOW" event. Advertisement for a FTA event under another organizations name title is not how the FTA is ran nor is it the responsibility, financial obligation or duty of the FTA to insure a policy for another organization. Beyond BOW is listed and advertised as the organization hosting this event on the social media platform. This has not been approved and might possibly be against an insurance contract being the FTA organization is the named insurer not the Beyond BOW-organization. Moving forward with the event is at Beyond BOW's discretion under Beyond BOW not FTA or FTA insurance. It is suggested that the FTA's website link and term co sponsor be removed from the Beyond BOW's organization advertisement ads. The event "Woman and Youth Trapper Training for FTA" itself has been cancelled. The officers determined this was necessary and best for the FTA due to conflicting advertisement for the event under another organizations name as well as the financial insurance means off the FTA for another organizations listed event. Beyond BOW organization can do as it chooses as it is an entirely separate entity but, not as an umbrella under the named insurer The Florida Trappers Assoc. That is not the responsibility, duty, or burden of FTA organization to insure and be responsible for another organization or financially host their event. FTA would not ask that of another nor will allow this happen to it any further. Beyond BOW is a FWC endorsed activity the FTA will not be responsible for any debt incurred by Beyond BOW.
