Range Development Conference Next Month in Nashville

Here’s an important item for shooting range owners and directors of shooting clubs. The NRA’s Field Operations group offers a series of Range Development & Operations Conferences for shooting range operators. In 2011, these are scheduled for: Nashville, TN (March 26-30), Buffalo, NY (June 4-8), and Reno, NV (October 15-19).

NRA Range Development Conference

Each NRA Range Development & Operations Conference is a five-day course that covers the fundamentals of building, owning, and maintaining a shooting facility. The $450.00 conference fee gives range operators five days with America’s top range development experts who will share their knowledge and experience. Topics covered will include:

  • Creating a business plan
  • Dealing with zoning boards
  • Environmental sound
  • Insurance issues
  • Meeting OSHA standards
  • Range maintenance
  • Range safety

“There are a number of unforeseen issues that arise when people begin the process of building a range,” said Senior Range Services Coordinator Kara Schlifke. “We can help you successfully navigate those minefields. And for those with an operation already up a running, there are always new issues and regulations to address.”

How to Register for Conferences
The next conference is coming up soon — March 26-30 in Nashville. Register online at www.nrahq.org/shootingrange/development.asp. For more information, call 877-NRA-RANGE or email Kara Schlifke at range@nrahq.org.
