NJSMA President’s Message
We have our annual meeting April 21 and 22, 2017 at the Holiday Inn, Clinton, NJ. This was a new venue for us last year and there was great enthusiasm to return again this year. The convention committee is busy working on the conference and planning a great collection of seminars. Additionally, all members are invited and encouraged to attend the Board of Trustees meeting and General Assembly on Friday evening. As we did last year, the Member's Packet will be available on the Convention page of this website for you to print out and bring to Convention or view a digital copy on your personal device. We will not be printing copies for distribution at the General Assembly. By making the Packet available on the website, every member can review the contained information even if they do not attend the General Assembly.
Even though every member will have access to the Packet online, it is still very important to participate as the General Assembly is the annual business meeting for NJSMA. If you've never attended before, there is nothing intimidating about participating, or just watching the proceedings; we would love to see some new faces!
The slate of Officers for 2017-2018 is also in this issue and they will be elected at the General Assembly and hold the first Board meeting at the conclusion of Convention for the new term. We hope to see you there!
Keep warm thoughts; spring really is just around the corner!
Terry Silvia, M.S., CMA (AAMA)
