2017 Featured Speakers

We have an exciting lineup of speakers scheduled for the 5th Annual NRA Women's Leadership Forum Summit. The confirmed list is shown below.

Gov. Greg Abbott
The Texas governor has been a staunch supporter of Second Amendment rights and he values and supports his state’s unique hunting heritage as a valuable tool for wildlife management and conservation. Abbott was also a leading defender in the landmark case of D.C. v. Heller, which held that the Constitution guarantees the right for an individual to keep and bear arms.

Gov. Kim Reynolds
Iowa's first female governor assumed the office in May. She previously served as Lieutenant Governor and was a member of the Iowa Senate from 2009-2010. Earlier this year, the state of Iowa passed a sweeping package of gun reform bills that was applauded by the NRA and gun owners. Reynolds looks to offer that same level of support for gun owners during her term.

Charlie Kirk
Charlie Kirk is the founder and executive director of Turning Point USA, an organization that has taken on the daunting task of fighting the institutional leftism and liberal indoctrination on college campuses. TPUSA has chapters on more than 1,100 college and high school campuses across the nation, and they also host the annual Young Women’s Leadership Summit.

Dana Loesch
The NRA National Spokesperson is a regular contributor to NRATV's Stinchfield, serves as an NRA News Commentator and is host of her own national talk radio show. Loesch has been a frequent guest on news shows of late as she discusses her NRA Freedom's Safest Place video, The Violence of Lies, which talks about combating the lies of the violent left with the "clenched first of truth.”

Colion Noir
The NRA News Commentator and host of NRATV’s is one of the most recognizable faces of modern-day gun culture. Also a practicing attorney, the gun-rights activist has a large social media following that appreciates his ability to take complex legislative issues and break them down into easily understandable terms.
