WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
 
The North Brunswick Newcomers Club welcomes new residents of Brunswick County!  Moving to a new place can be a daunting experience.  Our membership year runs from September to June. 
 
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended in-person monthly meetings until at least March 2021.  Leland’s Cultural Arts Center, our meeting location, is open for limited use…no large gatherings.  We will continue to monitor progress on combating COVID-19 and start monthly meetings only if conditions permit.
 
 
North Brunswick Newcomers;
 
The Board of Directors (BOD) of the North Brunswick Newcomers Club invites the membership of the NBNC to join us on ZOOM for our monthly meeting on Friday, March 15th, from 10:00-12:00.  We have two great speakers in March!
 
Ms. Bethany Welch, North Carolina Ports; Senior Manager of Communications and Business Outreach.

The Board of Directors recently changed the Membership dues.  The dues for the remainder of 2020 through June 2021 is now $10 per household. All current members membership has been extended to June 2021.  Please let your neighbors know to take this opportunity to join the Newcomers club. You may be a member for three consecutive years. Due to the impacts of COVID on this Club year, we have temporarily relaxed some of our membership rules.  The 2020-2021 Club year membership does not count against the 3-year membership limit nor the requirement for membership to be in consecutive years.  People who were members during the 2019-2020 and/or 2020-2021 Club years may remain members for a fourth year.  2019-2020 members who chose not to participate in 2020-2021 may return to the Club in 2021-2022 and complete a total of three years membership.
 
You will be able to log into the NBNC webpage and obtain a copy of the zoom invitation.
