The success of NRA’s recently concluded Annual Meetings sends the clear message that NRA members are primed and getting ready for Election Day 2006. The 135th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Milwaukee, Wisconsin were a resounding success with more than 54,000 members in attendance!
As noted in last week’s Grassroots Alert, the nearly 200 NRA members who participated in Friday’s NRA-ILA Grassroots Workshop set the stage for things to come, as virtually every area of the meeting saw increases, including membership recruitment and fundraising.
On Friday, May 19, NRA’s Board of Directors re-elected all of its officers--Sandra Froman (President), John Sigler (First Vice President), Ronald Schmeits (Second Vice President), Jim Land (Secretary), and Wilson Phillips (Treasurer). Wayne LaPierre was once again chosen as NRA’s Executive Vice President, and he in turn reappointed Chris W. Cox as NRA-ILA's Executive Director and Kayne B. Robinson as NRA Executive Director of General Operations.
Of course, much more occurred in Milwaukee than we have space to report here, so please look for a more detailed account of events in an upcoming issue of your NRA magazine.
We hope to see you at next year’s Annual Meetings in St. Louis, Missouri!
