The National Rifle Association’s annual meetings and exhibits, scheduled for April of this year in Nashville, was just one of thousands of casualties of the the 2020 pandemic. As for the NRA’s 2021 convention, scheduling it again for this coming spring has seemed to many of us still to be a little too optimistic, even with a Covid vaccine beginning to be distributed today.
So the NRA’s decision, just announced, to hold the meetings and exhibits in September instead makes a lot of sense. You’d thing by then, with fairly widespread vaccinations, holding it 10 months from now seems doable.
Here’s the NRA’s press release announcing the new date:
The National Rifle Association’s 2021 Annual Meetings and Exhibits will be held September 3-5, 2021. Originally scheduled for mid-May, the event will remain in Houston, Texas at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
As many uncertainties around COVID-19 restrictions persist, the National Rifle Association rescheduled its 150th Anniversary celebration to help members and exhibitors make the necessary plans to attend. Approximately 850 exhibitors will provide an exhibit hall that offers attendees a one of a kind experience with thousands of firearms on display from all their favorite manufacturers.
The 150th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits is open and free to all NRA members. Some events require a ticket, which can be ordered in advance. Members should watch their monthly membership magazine or go to www.nraam.org for updates and the latest information.
