NARA holds a monthly meeting on the third Saturday of each month.  All meetings begin at 6:00pm local time. During each meeting, NARA conducts business, followed by a technical or special topic presentation.  All NARA meetings are open to the public, and you do not need to be a member to join.  The business portion of the meeting typically lasts 30 - 45 minutes.

Meetings are held at the American Red Cross, 143 S 30th St, Newark, OH 43055.

All meetings are simulcast via Zoom for those wishing to attend online. Zoom sessions typically begin 15 - 30 minutes prior to the business meeting to allow for users to resolve connectivity issues and to visit with other guests on-site and online.
