Since 1998, NYRA’s Board of Directors meetings were open only to board members. For years board members have been debating whether or not to open the meetings. The argument against such a resolution has always been that if a new member comes to an unproductive meeting they will get a bad first impression of NYRA. The board now agrees however, that NYRA’s board meetings are productive more often than not, and that this would be a great way to get the general membership involved in the desicion making process. The next meeting is schedualed for March 14th at 7 PM eastern time. If you are interested in attending visit the chatroom on NYRA’s website.
