Meetings occur once every other month via video-conference.

Join the NMC for monthly Happy Lunches!

These virtual “happy hours” will take place at noon on the 2nd Friday of each month, beginning in March 2023.

Co-hosted by the New Members Committee and other NDLA committees, sections, and Executive Board positions, these lunches are a great way to learn about the work of the association and meet members from across the state. Drop in, stay as long as you like—all are welcome!

Watch the NDLA listserv for the Zoom link or reach out to the NMC chair.

Upcoming Happy Lunch dates:

  • March 10
  • April 14

If you have suggestions for discussion topics or would like your committee or section to co-host, let us know! Send an email to Amanda Walch, NMC chair.



What are we doing?

Watch the usual listservs for reminders and a Zoom link. Join us to meet new members and learn about the work of the committee! All are welcome to attend.
