Just a few weeks remain until the NRA Family event of the year: The 2022 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston, Texas! Set to take place over Memorial Day Weekend 2022, this will be one very long overdue "family reunion"! After two long years' cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, your friends at the NRA are so excited to open our doors, arms and hearts for you, our members. As you probably know, most of the events taking place that weekend are covered by the price of your admission—and if you're already an NRA Member, that admission is free for you and your immediate family. However, there are four can't-miss events that do require a ticket ... and they sell out fast. 

Thursday, May 26: Houston Metro Friends of NRA Fundraising Event

Did you know that the "NRA Show," as so many have come to call it, actually starts on Thursday? Although the exhibitors won't be ready to greet you until Friday morning, there's already lots of stuff going on. The can't-miss event that kicks off our 2022 Annual Meetings is, as always, a star-studded Friends of NRA event! Located at The Ballroom at Bayou Place, it's fewer than 7 minutes from the George R. Brown Convention Center. Come enjoy the festivities inside with a patio view of downtown Houston. Volunteers from around the region are pitching in to support one of the oldest events in the state to plan an amazing evening filled with friends, firearms, freedom and tons of FUN! Tickets are $100 or you can buy a table for $1,000

Saturday, May 28: NRA Grand Ole Night of Freedom Concert

This one is always a hot seller, and 2022 will be no different. Expect performances by America's most recognized patriot LEE GREENWOOD, Grammy Hall of Fame member known for "American Pie" DON McLEAN, award-winning LARRY GATLIN, Restless Heart's LARRY STEWART, SiriusXMs Prime Country host and award-winning T. GRAHAM BROWN, and hot newcomer JACOB BRYANT; all hosted by SiriusXM's Y2K host DANIELLE PECK with a special performance as well. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are just $25 and wheelchair-accessible seating is available for the same price. Click here.

Sunday, May 29: 2022 National Prayer Breakfast

North Carolina Lt. Governor Mark Robinson keynotes at this yearly devotional event. Beginning at 7 a.m. in the Grand Ballroom at the George R. Brown Convention Center, the National Prayer Breakfast offers fellowship with over 1,000 NRA Members for a time of inspirational encouragement. We'll have speakers who will challenge you with stirring words of freedom and faith, great music and food. This is one of the key events at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits. General admission is $45; purchase a table for 10 at $550 and secure a spot with a great view up front! Get your tickets here, Amen.

Sunday, May 29: 7th Annual NRA Women's New Energy Breakfast

Fear not; you can actually attend both Sunday breakfasts if you wish to! The Women's New Energy Breakfast runs from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in room 320 at the George R. Brown Convention Center. Of course, food is served (and it's delish), but the real draw is that it's a women-only gathering that offers a unique opportunity to learn about NRA programs and outreach efforts. You'll find yourself across the table from grassroots superstars, top competitors, female NRA board members, staff and leaders ... and you get to pick their brains about how to duplicate their success for yourself. If you're new to the NRA family or are attending the NRA show for the first time, this is the event for you! Get your tickets now for $20.00 each or $25.00 on-site.

Don't forget; the Annual Meeting of Members is on May 28 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Central time. We can't wait to see you in Houston!
