Last year, nearly 82,000 NRA members came together in Atlanta, energized to celebrate their freedom and stand united as one.
The National NRA Foundation Banquet and Auction, sponsored by Henry, Century Arms and Kimber, will kick things off Thursday evening. This highly anticipated event features an exciting evening of food, raffles and auctions, with opportunities to win exclusive firearms, outdoor gear, unique merchandise and hunts from across the globe.
Starting Friday, members can spend the day canvassing the 15-acre exhibit hall with over 800 exhibitors and featuring every major firearm company in the country, plus shooting accessories, knives, hunting outfitters and priceless gun collections. There are plenty of activities for the whole family, from the Pyramyd Air Air Gun Range to a special 30th birthday party for the Eddie Eagle GunSafe program, plus so many special activities packed into Sunday that we call it Youth Day. Live music from top country music artists can be heard all weekend long at the NRA Country sound stage, right in the Convention Center.
At Friday’s NRA-ILA Leadership Forum, Second Amendment leaders from across the country will join NRA’s Wayne LaPierre and Chris W. Cox to inspire and inform on the critical issues affecting firearms and the Second Amendment in the coming year. On Saturday, memberswill have their chance to vote and make their voices heard during the Annual Meeting of Members, where they’ll hear about the state of our organization and what’s in store for 2018. Saturday evening offers an exciting lineup of music performances by top country artists and celebrities as we celebrate the American values we cherish.
The 2018 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits offers fun activities for all and is sure to be another record breaker. Go to nraam.org for additional event and hotel information. We’ll see you there!
