Monthly Board Meetings

The Board meets monthly on a fixed schedule (for example, the 3rd Thursday of the month) which is set every year in January. The schedule for the current year is on the  Board Meetings page (here) and on the NIEBNA Calendar (here)

The Board meeting venue varies between DeLaSalle, Riverplace (near Wilde Roast), Ginger Hop and Lourdes Church depending on availability. The venue will be set approximately 2 weeks in advance and published in the Calendar.

Board Meetings are public and everyone is invited to attend and participate.

Date and Venue Changes

Both the date and the venue are sometimes changed due to last minute schedule conflicts and changes in venue availability – always check the NIEBNA website Calendar before leaving for the meeting to confirm details. 

August and November / December meetings

The August Board meeting is held only if there is pressing business that cannot be delayed to the next meeting. Also, the November and December meetings are usually combined into a single meeting in early December. The Board gets to take a vacation and celebrate the Holidays like the rest of us – at least in most years.


The final agenda is determined about 7 to 10 days before the meeting and posted to the NIEBNA website, listed on the  Calendar) and send to the NIEBNA email list. However, agenda items can be added and/or dropped right up to the start of the meeting.

Anyone may propose items for meeting agendas using the Contact Form. Also, anyone may request to make a presentation and/or to solicit support from NIEBNA on any top germane to the purposes of the Association. The Board reserves the right to limit the time devoted to any presentation and topic, however.
