NMNWSE Has New Mailing AddressNMNWSE's new address is:
PO Box 51926
Albuquerque, NM 87181
We are in the process of converting this website to reflect the new address, but please be aware it may take a while. The old mailing address will be kept active for one year to allow the new address to get established before closing the old PO box. This step was taken as for the last several years the majority of Board Members have been from Central Chapter, which is the most active chapter. Having the Network address in Albuquerque should improve the speed we process mail to the Network.
