Board Membership FAQ
When does the BOD Meet?
The NEBS BOD is currently meeting on the fourth Monday of each month, but the regular meeting date can change based on the needs of the BOD. Most of our meetings are online, with several regional in-person meetings a year.
What does the BOD do?
We handle the day-to-day operation of NEBS. Each BOD member is expected to participate on or chair a subcommittee. Subcommittees meet on an as needed basis. Much of what we do involves philanthropy, planning for events and sanctioning competitions.
What are the requirements of being a NEBS Board Member?
BOD Members need to:
- have access to a computer
- be able to check and respond to NEBS email on a regular basis
- be able to attend monthly meetings as often as possible
- be willing to work with others and to actively participate
- believe in the NEBS mission
How much time will I need to dedicate to NEBS?
It varies depending on the season, what events are happening and what committees you are involved in. Monthly meetings commonly last about 2 hours. If you are on an active committee such as Events or Sanctioning, you could be giving 8-10 hours a month to NEBS during busy times. NEBS holds events during the off-season, many of which require participation from multiple BOD members to make them
How much do I need to participate?
The more time you can dedicate to NEBS the better. We recognize that the lives of our BOD members are busy, so there is not expectation that a BOD member attend every meeting or event. Frequent particpation, however, is essential to moving NEBS forward. With the use of online meetings, it is easier for members to attend the meetings. For NEBS events participation is important so that the work is spread equally between BOD members.
Officer Positions will be discussed at the Annual Meeting.
In addition to being on the Board, there is currently a list of committees that you can choose to be on. View the Committees
