The 2021-22 Chapter year started on June 1st and I am honored to have been elected as NJAPPA President. I want to start the year by thanking Joana Dos Santos, for her service as Chapter President for the previous year. Joana has stepped down as her career path has taken her to a fulfilling career opportunity. I also want to thank our board officers, members and business partners for your continued support for NJAPPA.
It is great for our Colleges and Universities to know we are all back to in-person learning. Our campuses are once again thriving. As we transition back to our new normal activities, we continue to gain additional experiences using the knowledge gained while we were dealing with the realities of operating our facilities during the pandemic.
Unfortunately, the Board had to once again cancel our Spring Conference at Seaview this year. We will keep you posted about the planned 2022 Spring Conference at Seaview as soon as information is available to us. Our Spring Virtual General Membership Meeting was successful. We look forward to returning to face-to-face Membership meetings, beginning with the upcoming Fall General Membership Meeting at Rider University October 28, 2021. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic to determine what training opportunities we can host. Please continue to visit our website for updated information.
The Board is always interested in hearing from members about potential training topics and speaker recommendations. If you have any suggestions, you can reach the Board by going to the contact page.
Once again, thank you to all the higher education institutional members and our business partners and we look forward to meeting in person 0n 10/28/21 at Rider University for our Fall General Membership Meeting! See you soon!
