Meeting of Members is a chance to hear from NRA's leaders
Houston, Texas - If there is one thing that has to happen this weekend at the NRA Convention in Houston, it's the NRA Meeting of Members. Mandated in the National Rifle Association's founding by-laws, the Meeting of Members is where NRA Members receive the most up-to-date information regarding the Association, the national gun debate, and the outlook for the future.
Under the leadership of NRA President David Keene, the meeting was called to order this morning at 10:00am local time. Welcoming members and calling for order, Keene introduced the officers of the NRA including (but not limited to) NRA Secretary Major Jim Land, NRA General Operations Executive Director Kyle Weaver, NRA-ILA Director Chris Cox, and NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre.
The introduction of officers was followed by the introduction of Country Music Singer Mary Sarah. At the ripe old age of 17, Mary has spent the past five years touring the country. Today she was here for the NRA.
"I am so blessed to be singing again (for the) NRA two times today at the Annual Meeting," she told her fans via twitter.
Following her rendition of the National Anthem, Mary left the members to the business of the day.
Throughout the day, the Meeting of Members will cover the elections of Board Members, the state of Political Affairs, an address by several NRA officials and the voting of resolutions.
Open only to voting eligible members of the NRA, the Meeting of Members will also begin the voting process for the 76th Director to the NRA Board.
Updates on matters pertaining to the meeting will be provided as needed.
