Fellow Neighbors,


It's come to our attention that a flyer with unauthorized use of the NENA logo has been circulating this past week regarding a meeting happening next Thursday.  This has caused confusion for many neighbors.

The NENA board wants to make clear that this is not a NENA meeting. It is not sponsored, organized, or recognized by NENA. 


The meeting has no legal basis and it is not legally binding.

The petitioners organizing the meeting were informed multiple times they did not meet Idaho Code legal requirements for calling their own meeting.  Nor did they meet NENA bylaws requirements.

NENA hired a lawyer and subject matter expert with no ties to Boise who has successfully argued a non-profit membership case in front of the Idaho Supreme Court.  This was done to protect the integrity of the organization.


While the petitioners are organizing this meeting and misconstructing the truth about Idaho Code and the law, there are actually 8 open positions on the NENA board that need to be filled.  We have invited them to participate but they continue on the path of disunity towards the neighborhood.


You can read the subject matter expert letter here. We hope this divisive and dishonest effort ends soon so neighbors can again unite, work together to better the North End, and continue to enjoy where we live. 

We invite you all to get involved with NENA.  Stay well.

Opt out of NENA Membership:


NENA is a non-profit organization serving Boise’s Historic North End since 1976.  NENA strives to represent, preserve, and protect the historic, social, cultural, and environmental character of Boise’s North End neighborhood.


Anyone who lives or works in the North End is automatically a member.

We engage neighbors in developing creative solutions for positive change.  We have fun celebrating and embracing the diversity of our neighborhood that is essential to civic unity.  We listen to, respond to, represent, and collaborate for our neighbors’ interests.

We welcome you to the North End!
