The role of NABCA is to facilitate coordination and communication among parties interested in bat conservation in North America, to develop and maintain a North American Bat Conservation Strategy, and to develop and promote Action Plans to implement the priorities identified in the Strategy.

A winter meeting is held each year at various locations where participants present results from previous studies, provide updates on long term projects, and plan future multi-state collaborative endeavors. State representatives provide summaries of their state's bat related activities, while federal representatives provide updates on national scale policy and protection efforts.

The current mission of NEBWG is to facilitate networking with bat biologists and overhead is covered by volunteers. Annual meetings are supported by meeting registration fees and sponsors depending on the venue. There are no annual dues.
