When NRA members gathered for the 2016 Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Louisville, Kentucky, we had just 170 days until Election Day 2016.  This was not just an election to choose our next president.  The stakes during the 2016 election were even higher.  As Wayne LaPierre explained, that upcoming election was a chance to take our country back – back to its basic core principles:  individual rights, personal responsibility; duty to country; keeping your word; doing what’s right; living within your means; obeying the law; telling the truth; being fair; providing justice; and practicing common decency.  Every member in attendance was challenged to go out every day and fight for the principles, values and freedoms that make America unique.

And you did just that!  Thanks to your efforts and your commitment, the Clintons are not in the White House again.  Americans have a leader at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue who shares our belief in the principles this country was founded upon; who believes in the U.S. Constitution; and who is fervent about protecting not only our Second Amendment right, but the entire Bill of Rights.  The 5 million members of the NRA made the difference on Election Day. 

That battle was won, but the war rages on.  Join us as we plan for the fight to advance Second Amendment rights, and to defeat the counterattacks that are sure to come.

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, 2017, 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, 2017, 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 (2 months) Peyton Dempsey with Dad Brent, Mom Laura and Wayne LaPierre


Oldest Life Member (99 years) Wayne Burd 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.
