Update On NRA Annual Meeting

The NRA has finally provided official notice today of the time and place for the Meeting of Members in Charlotte. It will be at the Sheraton-La Meridian Hotel Complex. Having stayed there for a business meeting myself, it is a nice location.

From the American Rifleman site:

The National Rifle Association of America announces that the 2021 Annual Members’ Meeting has been rescheduled. The meeting was originally to have been held Sept. 4 in conjunction with the 2021 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, but was rescheduled due to the cancellation of the 2021 convention.

The meeting will now be held Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. in Charlotte, North Carolina in the Symphony Ballroom at the Sheraton & Le Meridien Charlotte Hotel Complex located at 555 South McDowell Street. Please join us and participate in the business of your Association.

The Voter Verification room, where eligible members can pick up their voting credentials will be located in the Executive Boardroom and will open on Friday, October 1, 2021, at 9:00am. The results of the 2021 mail ballot election for the NRA Board of Directors will be announced at the Annual Meeting of Members. For additional information, please visit nraam.org.

This notice is also on the NRA’s Annual Meeting website. It is not on the American Hunter website, the NRA homepage, or the America’s 1st Freedom website.

As for me, I think I can do more for advancing gun rights by setting up the Grass Roots North Carolina booth at the Asheville Gun Show that morning than by going to Charlotte. I also won’t have to see the makeup artist leaving after prepping Wayne for the cameras like I did in Tucson. Ugh!

  1. Honestly, make up artists for something with tons of lights and cameras aren’t unreasonable. I know guys don’t tend to think like that, but the first Kennedy/Nixon debate is often cited as the lesson learned there.

    If you’re going to be recording under bright lights, you need to wear makeup. For men, it needs to be at least some powder to help absorb the sweat that will appear. However, something that gives a smoother color is better. And if you can highlight better features, even better. Visual appeal matters, even if appeal is a generous interpretation of “simply not looking like a wet corpse.”

    If any readers who are valid voting members don’t have their email addresses on file with NRA, do let us know if they properly mail you notice via First Class mail as I read the NY law to require. They are too late to meet the requirement of advertising in a local newspaper and supplementing it with announcements across all of their websites. That requires 3 weeks notice prior to the meeting which they don’t have at this point.
