This year’s Annual Meeting of Members is at the 147th Annual Meeting & Exhibits in Dallas, Texas on May 5th.  Please join us.

The Annual Meeting of Members provides voting members with the opportunity to elect the 76th Director to the NRA Board.  If you are 18 years of age, a U.S. citizen and a fully paid NRA member by March 16, 2018, you have the right to vote for the 76th Director in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of Members.

Fully paid Lifetime and Annual Members with at least five years of consecutive membership, as shown in the Association’s membership records, who are 18 years of age on or before March 16th, 2018, and are citizens of the U.S., are strongly urged to participate in the business of our Association and to vote on issues presented during the Members’ Meeting.  Voting is an American right.  Don’t pass up this opportunity!

Do you have the NRA’s youngest Life member in your family?  Or do you think you might have the NRA’s oldest Life member living in your neighborhood?  Bring them to the 2018 Annual Meeting of Members and they could be recognized as the youngest or oldest Life member in attendance!  Each will receive a plaque, letter and photos to commemorate the occasion.

Youngest Life Member (one month) Zachary Swartz with Dad Ben and Wayne LaPierre


Oldest Life Member (90 Years) Morrie Edelman with Wayne LaPierre


Join generations of NRA members as we plan our future.  We look forward to seeing you in Dallas, where America’s freedom and the future of the country we all love will once more be at the forefront.
