Board of Directors election to be held this fall

The NFOA board is elected by the membership to service two year terms. This year is election year.

Have you thought about getting more involved with the NFOA?

Want to serve on the board?

Nominations for board members will open at the member meeting August 23rd.

The board of directors is responsible for running the day to day business of the NFOA.  Several boards members have decided to step down or not run again.  They have put much time and effort into building this organization.  Now it’s time for some new members to step up and provide fresh ideas and new energy into our growing organization.

If you know someone you believe would make a good board member, or know that you would, get in touch with any current board member before the members meeting so we can get names nominated.

Voting occurs online after we have published bios of all candidates.  More details on the election will be discussed at the Member Meeting.

Welcome to the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association

NFOA membership is open to all types of firearms owners as long as you are a resident of the state of Nebraska. Whether you are a trap shooter, long-range rifle shooter, concealed handgun permit holder, air gun, rifle and or shotgun hunter, NFA firearms enthusiast or belong to any other group of firearms owners, you are welcome to join our organization.

We are local firearms owners who have a personal interest in representing firearms owners rights in Nebraska. While there are much larger firearms owner groups and lobbyists, we have a personal stake right here in fighting for our rights. We do not have big money to fly in lobbyists from the coasts, we do not have the money to wine and dine Legislators, and we are just everyday normal Nebraska residents like you who want our voices to be heard by the various law makers. We will operate on what money is donated to us voluntarily.
