Want to know if this is ONLY open to leaders and certified instructors. I am a three year member of TWAW in ohio, ( Mt Vernon). I am. Range safety officer for the group.

If so, what other opportunites are there for active members like me?

This is just for Chapter Leaders and TWAW Certified instructors. Consider volunteering as a Chapter Leader (you can be a co-leader) or become TWAW Certified instructor! Many states and regions have started experiences similar to the conference to reach out to those like yourself who would love the Leadership Conference experience, so I’d encourage you to check those possibilities out as well.
