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.
