We are a non-profit society run by a Board of Directors and consisting of a general membership as well as an Arena Rider membership. The Society owns and maintains the 42 acre Exhibition Grounds in Vanderhoof, BC where we put on community events (such as the annual Fall Fair ) and rent the facilities to other community groups, businesses, and private individuals. Several clubs are closely associated with the NVES and use the Exhibition Grounds regularly. The society is also able to continue its services to the area with the support of our sponsors .
If you have an interest in any aspect of agriculture and want to get involved in the community, please become a member or volunteer with the NVE Society! Everyone is welcome to attend our monthly meetings, held the third Monday of each month at 7:00pm in the NVES office (inside the Arena building).
The NVES would like to extend a huge thank you to all the volunteers who have spent their valuable time assisting in various projects around the facility.
The next general meeting will be held Monday July 16th at 7 pm at the indoor arena
