As home to the world-famous Kentucky Derby, Louisville knows what it takes to showcase a spectacular race—and the NRA knows what it takes to stand up for our country and win the 2016 presidential race! Make plans to join NRA President Allan Cors, Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox and your other NRA officers for the 145th Annual Meeting of Members in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday, May 21, 2016, as they unveil NRA's master plan to save the Second Amendment and to sprint toward victory in the 2016 elections!
The 2015 Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Nashville, Tennessee focused on the next 650 days, the most dangerous days in history for the Second Amendment and for our personal freedom. Your NRA officers are 100 percent committed to taking a stand and fighting for what is good and right in this country, and in leading the charge in defense of our God-given, constitutionally guaranteed freedoms.
But never forget that all of the plans and all of the effort will be lost unless you – our members – join in this commitment to be vigilant, stand firm, demonstrate strength and character and stick up for what is good and right.
Just as the Kentucky Derby is viewed by millions, all eyes will be on the outcome of the 2016 elections, and the role that NRA members play in the finish. Commit now to be a part of history. Join your NRA officers as they share their insights and prepare this Association to ace one of freedom's toughest tests ever! Together, we can make a difference in the fight to reclaim our country.
The Annual Meeting of Members also 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 April 1, 2016, you have the right to vote for the 76th Director in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of Members.
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 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. Consider it a warm up for voting in the 2016 elections! Voting is an American right, and it's more crucial than ever before in our nation's history.
Do you have NRA's youngest Life member in your family? Or do you think you might have NRA's oldest Life member living in your neighborhood? Bring them to the 2016 Annual Meeting of Members and they could be recognized as the youngest or oldest Life member in attendance! Each will receive a plaque and photos to commemorate the occasion.
Join generations of NRA members as we plan our future. We look forward to seeing you in Louisville, where we will be racing to protect and defend our freedoms and the country we love.
