NABE Board Meeting Highlights (January 22, 2019)

The NABE Board had a full day meeting in Las Vegas on January 22. In addition to receiving financial and membership reports, the board discussed how best to approach planning for 2019-2020, the cases impacting mandatory bars and the status of all NABE sections, standing committees and working groups. Action wise, it was a busy meeting. We 1) agreed to develop a strategy to better support executive directors’ knowledge of government relations issues; 2) decided to move the membership meeting out of the final day lunch format at midyear and annual meetings and will study different options; 3) approved the contract for Elizabeth Derrico and Associates to begin working on new NABE priorities; 4) agreed to develop a different webinar pricing structure to attract multiple professionals from the same bar/office; and 5) modified some of our membership policies to allow bar professionals who move to a new bar employer a pathway to continue their NABE membership at no additional cost for the remainder of the membership year and made it easier for members in consolidated bars (such as Colorado and Minnesota) to pay once on behalf of the consolidated bar rather than pay multiple times as individual bars.

It was great to see so many of you in Las Vegas and I hope your year is off to a good start.

Respectfully submitted, Ellen Miller, NABE Secretary
