"Mr. Barron is the former Chairman of The Jefferson Educational Foundation and the former Chairman of the Young Republican National Federation. He has been active in organizing U.S. support for emerging democracies and developing nations for 30 years and has established many bipartisan coalitions that have helped project U.S. foreign policy globally. He has served on the National Board of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and the boards of the African Safari Club of Washington, the WILD Foundation, and the Cheetah Conservation Fund." [1]

"Active in conservation, politics and private business for over 25 years, Mr. Barron is chairman of the board of Barron-Birrell, Inc. and a prominent champion of democracy and human rights. In various capacities over the years he has represented U.S. policies abroad, and is a recognized expert in sub-Saharan African politics. He has addressed the United Nations, authored foreign policy articles, and led many Congressional tours to Africa -- where he now concentrates his attention on developing U.S.-southern African business/political ties. He has also played an important role (with explorer Michael Fay, a WILD Trustee) in establishing the new national park system in Gabon (West Africa), and in gathering support and momentum for the US-lead Congo Basin Tropical Forest Initiative. A committed conservationist, he is also listed in Who's Who in American Politics." [1]
