A number of Blogmocracy posters are planning to attend the 2013 NRA Annual Meeting, which will be held in Houston, TX May 3-5. For those who are planning to attend, here is some updated information on various events:
Pre-registration is available for those with an NRA member number, which will allow you to skip the line for registration and get your credentials in the mail.
NRA-ILA Leadership Forum (1:00-3:00 PM Friday)
This year’s Forum will feature some of our nation’s top Second Amendment leaders, including: former Governor Sarah Palin, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Rick Perry, Governor Bobby Jindal, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, and former Congressman Asa Hutchinson.
Annual Meeting of Members (10:00 AM Saturday)
Get the most up-to-date information available to NRA members about the state of your Association, the status of NRA’s political fight for our firearm freedoms and the challenges firearm owners are facing. The Annual Meeting of Members is where your NRA Officers will share the good, the bad, and most importantly, the truth about the political status of Gun Owners and our right to keep and bear arms. These folks are in the trenches every day. You need to hear what they have to say. You need to know their first-hand experiences. Prepare to take notes and take a stand! Every NRA Officer will be in attendance at the Annual Meeting of Members on Saturday, May 4. NRA members will vote for the 76th Director to the NRA Board. Eligible members should participate in the business of the Association and are strongly encouraged to vote. Voting members help determine the future course and direction of the Association. You don’t want to miss this opportunity!
