Meeting dates and location vary, but generally meetings are in the Fall, Winter then the Summer Convention meeting. Dates and location are determined by the club/organization that volunteers to host the meeting. Visitors are welcome to attend the NABO meeting as observers if space allows, but please obtain confirmation by contacting Philippe Acheritogaray at
