New Day is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors, and their monthly meetings are open to the public.

We invite you to attend our next Board Meeting. Meetings are held every fourth Tuesday of the month at 4:30 pm. Due to COVID-19, Board Meetings are held online through Zoom. Please email Myra Patterson at for more information and to receive the meeting link.

When held in-person, Board Meetings take place at our Administrative Office located at 2305 Renard Pl SE Ste 200, Albuquerque, NM 87106.
