The 2020-21 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 Todd Miller, for his service as Chapter President for the last three years. A big thank you to Andrew Christ, NJIT for his role as a trustee and to Bob Cornero, who has agreed to fill that position. In addition, I would like to welcome Josh Johnson, Mercer County Community College and Stephanie McCormick, Drew University, as Directors at Large. I also want to thank our board officers, members and business partners for your continued support for NJAPPA.
I hope this message finds you and your family healthy during this unprecedented time. I know we are all going through a difficult time, but this too shall pass and we will come back stronger than ever!
Unfortunately, the Board had to cancel our Spring Conference at Seaview this year. We will keep you posted about the 2021 Conference as soon as information is available to us. Over the summer months, the Board has been meeting to start planning events for the 2020-21 chapter year. We will 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, soon! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Joana Dos Santos, M.B.A.
