 BoiseCFR Meetings

NOTICE: Like so many other organizations BoiseCFR, because of Covid-19, has cancelled dinner meetings for the foreseeable future.

We are going to begin having Zoom based online meetings in September. We expect some issues and we know this is hardly a good substitute for a dinner meeting. However, for the safety of our members, this is our best option for the moment. Once this pandemic is behind us, we will be back with our dinner meetings.

Zoom meeting link information will be sent to all members in our normal email meeting announcements. You should receive several email announcements at least one week before the meeting date. If you are a member, and have not received the Zoom meeting information by then, please email us from our Registration page to let us know you did not get the Zoom meeting link. We will email you the meeting link.

If you have guests, you may forward the Zoom link to them. Please do not post the Zoom meeting link, this is to prevent the meeting being hacked by none members.

Meetings are for members and invited guests. If you are not a member and would like to get further details about attending a meeting as a guest or joining, please go to our Membership page and fill out the simple form to receive more details about attending a meeting and joining the BoiseCFR.
