NJHSA Conference to be Held in Spring 2018; Executives to Meet in October 2017 in Arizona

The NJHSA “Launch” Conference will take place in Chicago at the end of April 2018. More details will be made available as plans are finalized.

In a similar vein, NJHSA will be hosting a meeting October 28-30, 2017, for Agency Executives, at the Arizona Biltmore. This will be the first formal time for all 140+ Executives to gather. While there will be serious networking for  all, there will also, of course, be compelling content.

Member Agency Dues

A large part of the impetus for the NJHSA has been the reality that dues paying membership associations are becoming anachronistic. We are working toward creating a modern association that is not (as) dependent on dues. In the meantime please budget neutral for the next year, i.e., whatever you paid (or will pay) for 2016 is what the NJHSA will need for 2017. After 2017, it is fully anticipated that dues will be somewhat alleviated by alternative revenue streams.
