Barry B. Snell – President


Bridging the gap between the board and the executive committee and managing the big picture, Barry is also one of IFC’s chief lobbyists, proving once and for all that a degree in Political Science and History really was useful despite all the naysayers.  In former lives, Barry was a network security geek for the Department of Energy, a third shifter at an Iowa sheriff’s department and an EMT and volunteer firefighter on the side, a small arms repairman for the U.S. Army, and was training coordinator and lead instructor at a major indoor shooting range.  You may contact Barry at bbsnell@iowafc.org.
