About the BNC

Boulder Newcomers Club (BNC) was founded January 10, 1950 as an informal social club by a group of women, living in and around Boulder, to help new members of the community establish friendships, learn about the area and have fun! This highly successful club has remained in continuous operation ever since. Today’s BNC includes men and women, singles and couples, working professionals, empty nesters and retirees.

Whether a new resident has moved across the state, across the country, or across an ocean, BNC can make his or her transition easier. Today’s membership includes those from within Colorado as well as from across the United States and from as far away as England and Japan.  Today’s approximately 200 transplants reside in Boulder and surrounding Front Range towns, including Broomfield, Erie, Longmont, Lafayette, Louisville, Lyons, Nederland, Niwot and Superior.

While the numbers are undocumented, it is estimated that between 7,500 and 10,000 individuals have been helped by BNC to find their places in our community. Some have contributed to the local economy through paid positions. Others have volunteered their time and talents to nonprofit organizations. Whether working, volunteering or playing our members are proud to be part of this community – the best possible place to live, work and play!  We are equally proud to have fostered social activities and friendships that our members continue even after Club membership ends.

Polly Collier, joined BNC in 1950; established Boulder Greetings where she welcomed new residents and recommended BNC; served as Club Advisor for many years; and is the Club’s only honorary member. Polly says… “BNC makes your life happy.”
