HQ does not have the resources to do graphic or handle printing work for chapters.
Chapter mailings will be sent to chapters, the National Executive Board, the regional boards, and national and regional advisors on or before the 5th of every month (or on an as needed basis). Chapters are encouraged to check their mailboxes at least twice a week.
The HQ is responsible for distributing information from the NEB/NAB. It is preferred that HQ receives documents for mailing in the final, proofed form, however, special circumstances may call for HQ to proof read and edit documents into final form.
The HQ is not responsible for distributing information on behalf of a particular region (including Alumni) to its chapters.

To ensure receipt of mailings and NSBE publications, all address corrections (chapter and individual members) must be sent (in writing-via fax or e-mail) to the Membership Coordinator.

Bulk copies of the Bridge Magazine are available for $1 each, in boxes of 100 only.
