In the period 1909 to 1937, the association held annual meetings, perhaps at Union Seminary, right from the start.  We have fairly good evidence that from 1938 through 1963, NABI met each year at Union Seminary, with the exception of the 1957 meeting, which was held at Southern Baptist Seminary in Louisville, KY.  If you have information on Annual Meeting sites prior to 1969, please contact the Director of Meetings.
