Due to the nation’s ongoing health emergency, the National Rifle Association has come to the unfortunate but necessary decision to cancel its 149th Annual Meeting. This annual celebration of our freedom was scheduled for April 16-19 in Nashville, Tenn.
The NRA closely monitored updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Tennessee Department of Health on the spread and impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Given that a state of emergency was declared in Tennessee, and given this virus’ threat to the health of the tens of thousands of visitors this show gathers together each year, canceling the convention was necessary.
This applies to all events and scheduled programs related to the show, including the NRA-ILA Forum. Details regarding a rescheduled NRA Members’ Meeting will be forthcoming. Under the direction of NRA President Carolyn Meadows, the NRA Board of Directors is working with the Office of the Secretary in relation to board elections, meetings and the like.
