News About Your Membershp Year - Another Increase in the Value of Your Membership
We are pleased to announce that all current NJSHA members will receive six (6) additional months of FREE NJSHA membership!
The NJSHA Board of Directors recently voted to adopt the calendar year for NJSHA Membership. Making this change should provide NJSHA with a better opportunity for planning and hopefully alleviate the confusion for members not knowing the membership cycle, as well as provide more benefits to those who become a member when registering for Convention.
What does this mean to you? Your NJSHA membership that would have expired on June 30 (of this or a future year) will now be extended to December 31. You will now receive your membership renewal form in October, which will be for membership starting January 1 and ending December 31. There is nothing you need to do at this time - the free six months has already been added to your membership.
NJSHA is proud that we have been able to maintain our membership dues structure over the past few years. At the same time, NJSHA membership benefits have continued to increase. Such benefits include: a legislative voice, reduced registration fees for NJSHA events, online CE webinars, the VOICES newsletter, an up-to-date website, email communication, professional networking and leadership opportunities, an online membership directory, just to name a few.
Thank you for being a NJSHA member and we look forward to another exciting year!
