Friends of NRA

Friends of NRA has named the recipients of their Friends of NRA Volunteer of the Year award for 2011.

While there are many great volunteers who help put on events throughout the year, each of these select volunteers has had an outstanding impact on Friends of NRA at both the local and regional levels.

NRA Field Representatives recommend Area Volunteers of the Year, evaluating them on banquet tickets sold, underwriting received, years of service and other criteria. Recipients are awarded a “2011 Friends of NRA Volunteer of the Year” jacket as well as special recognition from their Field Representative.

Region Volunteers of the Year are chosen by senior NRA staff from the area volunteer award winners. In addition to the 2011 Volunteer of the Year jackets, region award winners will be honored guests at this year's NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in St. Louis, Missouri. There they will receive special recognition at the National NRA Foundation Banquet on Thursday, April 12, 2012.
