Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month at The Barbizon. It is located at 140 East 63 St., in the Club Salon on the third floor. All members are welcome to attend.

Study Groups

Study groups are open to BNC members only. To participate in topic-specific study groups, BNC members must first join the general study group that meets in the afternoon following our General Meetings from October to June. A single $40 fee allows you access to the eight general study group sessions which are held at 1:15 p.m. at The Barbizon.

Note: Please always confirm your attendance.
