No, the meeting in Houston was not posted.

Carry was allowed at the Houston convention.

I bet carry is allowed, unless Trump is speaking.

You will be able to carry at any NRA convention. That's a contractual requirement that only a last minute change in the law could obviate. That's not happening in Texas.

I plan on parking at the TRE station in Ft. Worth, and riding the train to Dallas, and then getting on the DART rail to the convention center. It really helps avoid Dallas traffic on weekdays. Plus LTC carry is legal on all of the trains. I believe it is $10 a day, and there may be two day, passes that are cheaper. They have no service on Sunday, but I only plan to go Friday and Saturday. I have never been able to get off, to travel to an NRA convention, so I am really looking forward to next year. :anamatedbanana

There are other volunteer positions (working in the store, signing in members, etc.), but I don't know anything about them.


How does one apply to be a volunteer at the convention? I'm in Fort Worth, but I could put in 2-3 days for them.

For this year there was an option on the web site menu. I imagine next year will be the same.

I'm planning on ordering a custom T-shirt with our forum name on it, "SIA", and my full screen name.
If any of y'all see me there, please stop me and say hi.

i happened upon a notice in the American Rifleman about 3 months prior to the meeting. It may be too late for that, but I would speak toone of the volunteers checking people in at the show, and ask them. They always seem to need volunteers. Inspectors, check-in, NRA store, gun range, etc.

We have a Forum Administrator, who may be able to provide you with information. I would just PM Charles, and see if he can point you in the right direction.

I don't know, but it would be extremely foolish politically to ban concealed or open carry. Gun controllers would have a heck of a field day with that.

Sorry, I have no idea how we recruit and/or organize volunteers.

Here you go.

I'm sure they will have a similar signup page for Dallas. https://www.nraam.org/volunteer/

Thanks Mojo, but the first link is for Atlanta with no mention of Dallas, and the second link has no mention of the annual meeting listed. I guess I will have to look around a few months before.
