Friends of NRA reviews banquet season progress and prepares for second half of 2013
Fairfax, Virginia - The Friends of NRA program is a large family of individuals dedicated to preserving our country's shooting sports heritage. This past week we finished highlighting the Volunteers of the Year; the best of the best among the thousands who donate their time to the organization each year.
There's another group within the program that is integral to its success. NRA's Field Representatives works tirelessly year round to make sure all 1,100 events run smoothly and grants go to deserving organizations.
Field Reps are NRA employees and, unlike volunteers, are able to devote all 365 days of the year to Friends of NRA. It isn't a job just anybody can do. Field Reps are constantly on the move, driving around their territories from committee to committee, helping organize events.
All this week the Field Reps are getting a break - if you want to call it that - when they gather for the 2013 Field Operations Division Annual Planning Meeting. A biannual event, meetings bring both Field Reps and NRA Headquarters staff together to review the last half year and plan for the remainder. Days will be filled with training workshops on new and updated Event Services, Insurance, Clubs & Associations, Database Administration, Grants and more services and products. Reps will even begin selecting merchandise for next year's Friends of NRA banquets.
