A Message from our President
Wow, it was so wonderful to see so many members attending our Fall Luncheon at the New Jersey Motorsports Park. I hope all that attended enjoyed our “new location” or as my students would say our “new digs”! The staff seemed very accommodating! Some members commented about the food being, “Fresh, very tasty, best soup ever, and the bread pudding was better than their grandmothers!” I personally want to thank Connie Cossaboom for making all the arrangements for our luncheon!
Kudos to my Executive Committee: Pam Garwood, Marlene Walker, Leslie Trucano, Connie Cossaboom, and Nancy Wagner-Jenkins for coming early and guiding our members to our 2nd floor location, signing members in, as well as, the election petitions for Sean Spiller, Steve Beat- ty, and Petal Robertson. It takes a whole team to make things run smoothly and you guys were super…Thank You!
When members contact me requesting guidance as to whom they should speak to when it comes to resolving some problems they are encountering…I always try to find the person(s) that would best answer their question(s) at NJEA. I think it is safe to say that Sarah Favinger, the NJEA Associate Director of Research and Economic Services, did a fabulous job sharing all the information in reference to Medical Insurance, Membership Cards, and going back to work after retirement. I have heard from many of our luncheon attendees how much information Sarah was able to provide. They felt good that NJEA had,their backs.
Pat Provnick, one of our CCREA Members, gave a fabulous report on our County’s PAC contributions. For a small county we did great! Our challenge is to do even better this year.
Remember our benefits are determined by the State Legislature. They vote to support it …. but they can also vote it away! Your contribution to PAC can help us pick the best candidates that have our best interests in mind. We voted them in and we can also vote them out! Welcome to Adam Sheridan, our new NJEA GR contact. Hopefully, we made him feel welcome and that he will be back with us very soon! Adam, it was great to have you with us.
I also received many calls regarding the NJEA Membership Card. It is on its way! In case you need it now, you may print it out by using the following steps to the right….I tried it and it does work!
If you have any issues following the above directions, don’t hesitate to contact myself, Pam, or Tina.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you at our Holiday Luncheon/Meeting on Wednesday, December 7, 2022 at 11:00 am. Our Holiday entertainment will be provided by the Millville Women’s Club Chorus.
Lastly, please remember to VOTE on November 8th. Thank you for all your support!
