NRA Board of Directors

76 Directors at large, elected by the members.

The NRA is its members.
Your vote, Your voice, Your Association.

What is the NRA Board of Directors?

How and why your vote matters.

My name is Timothy Knight, I am a Director on the Board of National Rifle Association of America. As a director I legally represent the interests of NRA members by way of an election of voting members. I serve at their pleasure for a three year term. I began my first term in April of 2015 and I was reelected to a second term in 2018. I will be up for election again in 2021, if I choose to run again. As a member representative, I have the responsibility of establishing, guiding and assessing the overall direction of the Association through my attendance at board meetings three times a year and serving on a committee in areas where I can provide expertise and practical experience. The director’s position is unpaid.

The Board is made up of 76 members at large from across the country who serve on 40 standing committees that span the extensive organizational structure of the NRA from competitions to grassroots politics.

Each year 25 of those NRA board seats are up for election by voting members of the Association. Voting members are those who have remained members for 5 years or have a life or greater membership in the Association. Those ballots are mailed in February or March every year either in your monthly magazine or by mail if you get an electronic publication. I want to encourage you, my fellow voting members, take this vote seriously.

You can vote for from one to twenty five people and have your ballot remain valid. Please read the provided biographies and do your own research. Be sure to sign your ballot and get it in the mail before the deadline.

One seat, the 76th seat, is a one-year term voted on by certain members in attendance at the NRA annual meeting.

It is your Association, you are its power and you decide who represents your interests. Thank you for your time and I hope to see you at an annual meeting or on the road standing up for our rights.

I believe I can best serve the members by serving of four committees. Some Board members serve on up to six committees.
