he NRA Board of Directors consists of 75 NRA members elected by mail
ballot, and one member elected on the occasion of the Annual Meeting
of Members. The right to hold the office of Director is limited to NRA
Lifetime members who have attained the age of 18 years and are citizens
of the United States, and who have been Lifetime members for at least five
years at the time of nomination (although this membership requirement
may be waived by the Executive Committee). Directors are elected for
three-year terms, with the exception of the Director elected at the Annual
Meeting of Members, who serves for one year. The terms of office of onethird
of the Board expires each year.
The Board of Directors has general charge of the affairs and property
of the Association and formulates and establishes the broad policies and
programs under which the Association operates.
T
In past years, the Nominating Committee has taken several factors into
consideration concerning those recommended for election to the Board.
The Committee has felt that nominees should be persons well-known and
respected in their communities, with broad experience and background
in the affairs of the Association, and with the time necessary to devote to
NRA activities. While these factors are not requirements, they may help in
the selection of those recommended for nomination to the Board.
The Secretary will determine the
validity of all petitions received
and the eligibility of all signatories.

16
If a petition is determined to
be invalid, the Secretary must
immediately notify the proposed
nominee and the sponsor stating the
reason for the ruling. The petitioner
may appeal the ruling to the
Nominating Committee within 14 days.
If the appeal is denied, the petitioner
may appeal to the Board
of Directors, which will act at its next
meeting. If the Board rules the petition
valid, the proposed nominee will be declared
a nominee for the next election.
Election Procedures
The names of those selected by
the Nominating Committee and of
those nominated by petition, together
with short biographical sketches,
will be published in the March 2022
Official Journals.
1
A ballot will be mailed to each member
eligible to vote. It will contain
the list of names proposed by the Nominating
Committee and those nominated
by petition and, in addition, provide five
blank spaces for write-in candidates.
2
The ballot, properly executed, must
be returned by the date indicated
on the ballot.
