NRCoNA meets each month (except July and August). In November/December, NRCoNA co-sponsors a joint meeting with the New Rochelle Citizens Reform Club for the purpose of hearing about the proposed New Rochelle City Budget. The April or May meeting (depending on timing) is also co-sponsored with the New Rochelle Citizen Reform Club for the purpose of hearing about the proposed school and library budgets and hearing from the candidates for School Board and Library Board. The Annual Meeting is held in May, at which time, officers for the following year, July 1 through June 30, are elected.
