2019 Gold Medal Clubs

2019 Gold Medal Clubs

Each year numerous organizations apply to achieve NRA Gold Medal status—an elite level that sets clubs apart from others in the area and recognizes the members of these clubs who have united to reach a common goal. The honor of Gold Medal status is presented to clubs that meet specific criteria and continually promote and support the purposes, objectives, policies and programs of the NRA.

The five criteria for Gold Medal status are:

  • Be a 100% NRA Club – All members of your club must also be members of the NRA. Becoming a 100% NRA Club helps make the NRA stronger by increasing its membership numbers and providing a larger representation of the shooting public.
  • Have a club newsletter – Newsletters help clubs communicate with their members and keep members in the loop regarding club activities and community issues
  • Belong to your NRA State Association – Belonging to the NRA State Association of your state shows your support at the state level. Their mission is to support the purpose and objectives of the NRA while providing programs and support to clubs on the local level.
  • Have administered or currently incorporate an NRA Youth Program within the club’s agenda – Incorporating a youth program helps introduce new generations to firearms and firearms safety. Encouraging young shooters to participate in the shooting sports helps preserve them for generations to come
  • Actively participate in NRA’s Membership Recruiting Program – Participating in the NRA recruiting program helps bring new members in at a reduced price and helps generate income for your club.

Clubs that meet the above criteria are awarded a plaque along with inscribed bar listing the year. Current Gold Medal clubs are encouraged to renew their status every year and will be given an inscribed bar with the renewal year. Applications from clubs that achieve and maintain Gold Medal status are given preference for NRA Range Grants.
