Current and impending shooting range owners need to pull out their collective maps and calendars; Nashville March 26-30, Buffalo June 4-8, and Reno October 15-19. These are the places and dates that NRA's Field Operations will be holding their Range Development & Operations Conferences. And if you don't know what that is, then you probably need to attend.
The NRA Range Development & Operations Conference is a five–day course that covers the fundamentals of building, owning, and maintaining a shooting facility. There you will here from experts on subjects such as:

"There are a number of unforeseen issues that arise when people begin the process of building a range," said Senior Range Services Coordinator Kara Schlifke. "We can help you successfully navigate those minefields. And for those with an operation already up a running, there are always new issues and regulations to address."

All this will help you achieve your ultimate goal of ensure the public has a safe and convenient place to shoot.
