As most members know, NABSE's headquarters is located on Capitol Hill, within walking distance to the Library of Congress, U.S. Capitol and the Supreme Court. This location is in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in the District of Columbia. It is also located in the midst of the DC Historical and Preservation District and will always be considered prime property.

Several years ago NABSE launched a $1 Million Capital Campaign at last year's NABSE Conference to renovate its offices and ensure the longevity of the building's structure. This year we are launching anew Capital Campaign for $4 million.

We've already received some donations from members for this year's campaign and their names are listed here.


We are pleased to bring you our NABSE NEwsletter coordinated by our Communications Chair, Gerri Bohanan and our office staff. We will bring you updates from our 80-plus affiliates, the progress of our Capital Campaign, and program information on our annual national Conference, scheduled for Washington, D.C. in November 2015.
