Sandy Froman is the immediate past president of the National Rifle Association of America, only the second woman and the first Jewish American to hold that office in the 136-year history of the NRA. Froman has served on the NRA Board of Directors since 1992 and holds a lifetime appointment on the NRA Executive Council.
A native of San Francisco, Froman is an international speaker for the right to keep and bear arms. Froman promotes the NRA as a civil rights organization, dedicated to the protection and advancement of the Bill of Rights, and the role of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms as an insurance policy for all civil liberties—the one right that protects all the others.
As NRA president, Froman emphasized the need for federal judges who interpret and apply the Constitution—as well as any other legal document—according to its original meaning. She also speaks of the right to keep and bear arms as especially important for women and minorities, seeking to reach those constituencies with her message of self-protection and self-sufficiency. Experienced in long-term nonprofit planning and past president of The NRA Foundation, Froman has also been heavily involved in NRA’s long-term strategy to permanently fund NRA’s educational, training and charitable programs.
A graduate of Stanford and Harvard Law, Froman is a practicing attorney in Tucson, Arizona, has been a partner at several law firms and has taught law school. She currently serves on the board of visitors of the law schools of George Mason University and the University of Arizona.
