Board of Directors

The board meets at least 6 times per year, usually in an online meeting. NRC bylaws call for at least 7 and no more than 13 directors.
Is a council of 7 to 15 experts representing all Nebraska regions to offer insights and advice on strategic direction and advocacy, industry and market trends, and best practices. The Council meets twice per year, once in a web-based meeting and once in person.
Equipment Grants Review Committee
Grant Applications are submitted to NRC on an on-going basis on the 15th of each month. NRC reviews grant application to ensure that it meets minimum requirements. Upon review of each grant application and submission of necessary documentation and clarification, NRC forwards all applications received to the Grant Review Committee. Reviews generally occur within a week upon submission of a complete package. Committee members review applications using the grant rating matrix and determine whether the grant application be forwarded to NET for their approval. A member disapproving an application as presented can suggest a different amount of grant award or other modifications/suggestions. NRC will contact the applicant to work out any adjustments and communicate this additional information to committee members. Approval of the grant is based on the number of points awarded on the grant matrix by the committee members.
