The NRA is hosting three FREE Club Universities this year across the country. Club Universities are daylong seminars designed to show clubs the benefits of being affiliated with the NRA. The forum affords clubs the opportunity to learn and discuss: integrating NRA programs that strengthen your club and community; special benefits to clubs (range services, NRA endorsed insurance, etc.); and networking between local clubs and state associations. All clubs and state associations are invited to attend the Club Universities.
NRA Headquarters staff will be present to speak about various NRA programs including competitive shooting, youth/women’s programs, ranges and Eddie Eagle. Other staff representatives will give information on grants, club recruiting and legislative initiatives. Speakers’ presentations will be geared toward how clubs can implement and grow programs at the local level and the benefits clubs receive from program delivery.
The forums will conclude with roundtable discussions on current issues clubs face. These can include suburban encroachment, databases, member attrition, etc.¾whatever is most pertinent to attendees¾so they can benefit from their peers’ experiences.
The three 2006 Club Universities will be held: August 12, in Ashley, OH; August 26, in Mt. Kisco, NY; and September 16, in Santa Ana, CA. Admission is FREE and meals are provided. Each university runs from 9:00 a.m., to 5:00 p.m., preceded by a continental breakfast and followed by an afternoon reception.
