Susan LaPierre

Co-Chair, NRA Women's Leadership Forum


Susan LaPierre grew up fishing, hunting and shooting with her dad in Wisconsin. As a lifelong outdoorswoman who's always believed in the Second Amendment and the NRA, it's no surprise Susan was instrumental in the formation of the NRA Women's Leadership Forum. Serving as co-chair of the group, she has seen membership skyrocket and has played a key role in growing the annual luncheon from a small living room gathering to a large banquet setting at the NRA Annual Meetings. "We welcome anyone with open arms," says Susan of the Women's Leadership Forum. "The more diverse the better."
