Attend FREE Virginia Volunteer Kick-Off Meeting in VA Beach On July 16!


This November, Virginia's elections will be ground zero for the enemies of freedom to try and turn the tide against our gun rights in the Commonwealth, serving as a launching pad for their national gun ban crusade. Our opponents will be pulling out all the stops as a run-up to the 2010 elections. All eyes will be on us!

To ensure we are prepared to meet the challenges and opportunities we will face this election season, NRA-ILA is hosting a free volunteer kick-off meeting on Thursday, July 16, at 6:30 p.m.

At this meeting, we will lay out our plans for our grassroots election strategies in your area and show you how you can help. You will also get to meet and begin working with your NRA-ILA Campaign Field Representative -- an NRA-ILA staff person who will be living in your area, coordinating our volunteer activities right through Election Day, Nov. 3!

This meeting is absolutely free and beverages and light snacks will be provided. It will run only about 60-90 minutes. Please make plans to attend and encourage your fellow NRA members and Second Amendment supporters to attend as well.

Here are the details:
Thursday, July 16
6:30 p.m.
Double Tree Hotel Virginia Beach
Sequoia Room
1900 Pavilion Drive
Virginia Beach, VA 23451

Yours in freedom,
