How do people know when the JBEA meets to consider applications? The meeting dates cited in this thread don't coincide with the Notices of meeting dates searchable in the Federal Register. Word of mouth?

I'm not sure, but I'm hoping they review my application at the meeting this month (whenever it is scheduled for). I received an email earlier this week asking for me to send over my official SOA transcript. I'm hoping that means they were getting my application ready for review...

The Joint Board generally meets the second Tuesday of every month.

I assume the joint board met yesterday since it sounds like they meet the second Tuesday of every month. It looks like historically the people who were approved at the monthly meeting get an email confirming their approval the following day. I was hoping to get an email today, but did not. Did anyone that is waiting for approval hear back today?

I am also waiting and did not hear anything today. A week or two ago someone did ask me for my SOA Transcript, which I promptly provided.

I thought that when the Board meets, there is a record of it in the Federal Register. See this:

http://regulations.justia.com/regula...browse-by-date

I haven't seen any notices of them meeting since the July meeting.

I'm pretty sure they met in August. My friend received an email on Wednesday, August 9 informing her that her application had been approved.

I don't think they're all that consistent with email notifications though. I've heard of some people receiving phone call notifications and others, like me, who received no notification at all. FWIW, my enrollment letter is dated 6/10/2014 but I didn't receive it until 6/28/2014. I mailed my application on 1/29/2014.

I hope you guys hear something soon!

I found out they are meeting next Tuesday, not this Tuesday. And no, there has been nothing posted online about their meetings, including in the Federal Register.
