    NOVABAA Convention at MGM National Harbor

    This is it Saints! It's Official!  Registration is now open!   

    We will be hosting our first ever NOVABAA Convention at MGM National Harbor Resort Hotel this September from the 15th to the 17th.  We will have LOTS of educational, recreational, and relaxational (is that even a word? I'm running with it because I'm on a roll...) events for the Saints to engage in.  From CLE by top notch presenters, to presentations on health, and mental health, as well as relaxation, meditation and yoga - we expect to knock your socks off!

    Sponsorship opportunities are available, if you or your firm might be interested in sponsoring our first annual NOVABAA convention, please click here.  The cost for NOVABAA members is $250, and $150 for guests.  Registration for Non-Members is $300.  

    We are pleased to announce that Friday's reception will be deejayed by the Pride of Heritage High School, NOVABAA's own DJ 5800, aka Hon. Dontae L. Bugg on the wheels of steel!  We will have a photographer, photo booth, and several special invited guests at the reception. We look forward to some incredible days of fun, education and relaxation with the NOVABAA brothers and sisters.  

    If you have already registered, you will receive an invoice to make payment.  If not, you will be able to register by clicking here. For those interested in booking a room at the MGM, NOVABAA has reserved a block of rooms, and they are first come, first serve! 

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at president@novabaa.org.

    NOVABAA's Bylaws Meeting

    As with any organization, Bylaws require fine tuning from time to time.  NOVABAA is no different.  Our bylaws were installed in 2009, and since then many things have changed, including NOVABAA and how it does business, that necessitate that we review our bylaws.

    Per our Article X of our current bylaws, we are required to give at least 30 days notice of the bylaws meeting, as well as 30 days notice of the proposed amendments.  Proposed amendments may be made by a majority vote of the Executive Committee, or by written request of three (3) NOVABAA members in good standing.  The proposed amendment will be put to a vote, and become law if a super majority (3/4) of the members in active standing at the Bylaws Meeting.  In short, if you would like for your voice to be heard on any proposed amendments, you will have (1) to be an active dues paid member, and (2) be present at the Bylaws Meeting on September 20, 2022.

    The Executive Committee has begun its review of NOVABAA's bylaws, the proposed amendments, no later than the (bylaws imposed) deadline of August 20, 2022.  Any other member supported proposed bylaw amendments will also need to be submitted to membership (via the Executive Committee) by the same deadline.

    NOVABAA's Bylaws Chair is Mr. Robert Bryan.  If you have questions, or proposed amendments, you can reach out to them, or to Rex Flynn.  In the meantime, if you would like to see the current NOVABAA Bylaws, please click here.  If you would like to see the proposed amendments, please click here.  To submit a proposed amendment, please submit to novabaa@gmail.com.
