Plan ahead: 2017 Meetings and Travel Expenses

A preliminary list of 2017 meeting dates and location is provided below; however, some are subject to change. NLC will communicate the 2017 meeting dates, times, and locations when finalized. Officers and board members are expected to attend the meetings as outlined below.

NLC 2017 Board Meetings

June 19-21, 2017 Summer Board and Leadership Meeting: The 2017 Summer Board and Leadership meeting, held in Cleveland, Ohio, reviews progress on the advocacy priorities, helps shape work on other NLC issues and priorities, and as needed, considers federal policy issues referred by the seven advocacy committees that require immediate action. This free-standing summer board meeting also allows a mid-term review of progress under the NLC Strategic Plan, and provides the best opportunity for exploring selected issues in depth. Register here.

November 15-18, 2017 Board Meeting: This meeting, held at the beginning of the annual conference, concludes the NLC governance year. (The 2017 conference will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina.) At the November meeting, the Board reviews the major accomplishments under the NLC Strategic Plan for the year and discusses any national policy issues requiring Board action before the Annual Business Meeting. (Dates and location of the conference are final. Exact board meeting days and times are to be determined.)

Travel Expenses

Board members are expected to cover their travel and hotel costs for the board meetings. NLC pays the cost of group meals during the board meetings. For the two meetings held in conjunction with annual conferences, board members are expected to pay their own conference registration.
