Individuals wanting to see some change at the top of the NRA after months of media reports related to the organization’s finances and the relationship with their main PR firm were probably hopeful that these would be addressed by the Board during their meeting after the close of the just completed 148th Annual Meeting and Exhibits in Indianapolis .  We likely won’t find out what happened in the Board Meeting beyond what we already know, that Wayne LaPierre was unanimously reelected to his position as CEO and there is a new NRA President, longtime board member Carolyn Meadows.  Charles Cotton replaced Richard Childress as 1st Vice President and Virginian and Virginia Shooting Sports Association member Willes Lee was elected 2nd Vice President.  Almost the entire nine and a half hour meeting was held in closed session.  The public and NRA Members are not likely to know what transpired during that time because notes are not taken in meetings held in closed session.  I sit on two boards, the VSSA Board and my daughter’s school board and I previously held a position on a board of a Virginia public university.  All that is placed in the minutes related to things discussed in executive session are things like “the board went into closed session to discuss a personnel issue(s)” or similar matter.  For a complete run down on what transpired yesterday, I recommend Stephen Gutowski‘s Free Beacon article.
