To adhere to CDC recommendations to avoid large gatherings and observe social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the DRBA offices are closed to the public and are operating with remote working staff and reduced, staggered employees on-site to ensure the continuity of operations. As a result, DRBA Committee and Board meetings will be held virtually until further notice. These meetings begin at 10:00 a.m. and the electronic link will be available at www.drba.net approximately one week prior to the meeting date.
 
The DRBA plans to resume in-person Committee and Board meetings when conditions permit and it is safe to do so. Generally, these in-person meetings take place in the James Julian Boardroom, located in the Administration Building of the Delaware River and Bay Authority in New Castle, Delaware. 
 
In addition to the general Board meeting where official Authority actions take place, one or more of the following Committees may also meet to discuss matters pertaining to the DRBA: Audit and Governance Committee, Budget and Finance Committee, Economic Development Committee, Personnel Committee, and Projects Committee. If the need arises, additional meetings may be added to the above schedule and will be posted on www.drba.net.
