Grassroots Campaigning In a National Election Year

Friday, February 24, 2012

Plan to attend this free training event at NRA's upcoming Annual Meetings in St. Louis, MO!

FREE

Friday, April 13, 2012
9:00 a.m. (Registration and free continental breakfast from 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.)
Renaissance St. Louis Hotel
800 Washington Avenue, Landmark Ballrooms 1-3, Lobby Level
St. Louis, MO 63101
(314) 621-9600

With so much at stake in the 2012 elections, this event will provide tips and strategies on how gun owners can work more effectively to elect a pro-gun President, along with electing Members of Congress and state legislatures who will preserve our rights.  In addition to hearing from NRA Officers and NRA-ILA staff, for the first time ever, a panel of your fellow NRA members, giving firsthand accounts of their grassroots strategies and successes, will be integrated into the program.

Your attendance at this special event in St. Louis is a critical step toward ensuring the future of our gun rights.  This seminar will likely be attended by hundreds of freedom-loving NRA members, so be sure to register today!

For more information, please contact the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-(VOTE) 8683, or you may click here to sign up for the NRA-ILA Grassroots Workshop http://www.nraam.org/events/grassroot-workshop.aspx.

There is no better time to prepare for success for the inevitable battles we will face than while we are in St. Louis!  Please encourage your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to attend as well!

Finally, we are in need of volunteers at this year’s Annual Meetings and you can contribute to the success of our meetings by participating as a volunteer.  If you can spare a half-day or more while attending the St. Louis Annual Meetings, you can assist NRA staff in making this year’s event our best yet!  Participating in the Annual Meetings as a volunteer is one of the most satisfying and enjoyable activities you will experience as an NRA member.

Volunteers are needed in a wide variety of activities including the NRA Store, Membership Services, Airgun Range, Firearm Inspectors, and Exhibitor Registration.  The store, in particular, requires lots of manpower; especially needed are volunteers who have cashier experience.  Membership Services is a busy place as many members renew or upgrade their memberships.  And we will need many NRA-certified instructors to assist young people at the air gun range.  There are other opportunities as well.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Gayle Carter-Cook, Volunteer Coordinator, at (361) 404-1712, or via e-mail at nravolunteer@gmail.com.  Additional information and a registration form are available at the Annual Meeting site: http://www.nraam.org/.

We hope to see you in St. Louis!
