A New ISRA Grassroots Group in the Northwest Suburbs!

Getting CCW in Illinois was not the end of the road, but a new beginning.

ISRA members need to remain vigilant and need the opportunity to meet with their peers for strategy, information sharing and camaraderie!

ISRA Grassroots groups are continuing to form around the state, we are proud to announce a new group meeting in the Northwest Suburbs. We have a guest speaker scheduled, Carolyn Schofield, who is running for Illinois House of Representatives/

What can you expect at an ISRA Grassroots meeting? You would find items of interest in your area, with guest speakers, legislative updates, open discussion and more. While the initial roll-out of the meetings might be similar, expect the grassroots group in your area to evolve to be more meaningful to the people in attendance. Meetings are intended to be held monthly and will start at 7:00 pm on a weeknight, and are scheduled for one hour.

Details for this new meeting:
