NJSMA President’s Message

It’s hard to believe it but we’ve finally made it to spring and summer is around the corner! We have so much news to share but more importantly, we need your active participation now more than ever…. 

Our 2017 NJSMA State Convention was a huge success and it was wonderful to have over 80 members in attendance. We are thrilled that our membership continues to grow and look forward to an increase in member attendance at our BOT meetings. We hope to see many of you at our June 25th meeting in Holmdel where we will be planning our 2017-2018 events. WE NEED YOUR HELP!

 Our 2017-2018 slate of officers elected at Convention are as follows:

         President-Terry Silvia, M.S., CMA (AAMA)

Speaker of General Assembly-Susan Henderson, A.A.S., CMA (AAMA)

Secretary-Emily Carew, A.A.S., CMA (AAMA)

Treasurer-Susan Pignata, A.A.S, CMA (AAMA)

 

 ****The return of PGW has been very popular and we would like to continue offering our members the opportunity to gain valuable ceus each year. However, we have a shortage of members assisting with this event. PGW Chair, Nancy Fertakos, is seeking volunteers to assist her and most importantly someone to serve as the education chair for PGW to recruit/acquire 5 speakers for this event and submit all required paperwork to the AAMA for program approvals.

 If we do not have a volunteer to help in this capacity, we risk cancelling PGW for this November. NJSMA members’ next opportunity to acquire ceus will not be until the Convention in April of 2018.

 If you are interested, please attend the June 25th meeting and/or contact us. Marianne Van Deursen will be happy to orient you to the duties and responsibilities and guide you through the approval process.

 

 Terry Silvia, M.S., CMA (AAMA)

President
