Department of NJ Bulletin – October 25, 2016

The Department Office moved on September 15th to 171 Jersey St, Building 5, 2nd Floor, and Trenton, NJ 08611. Please note the zip code change as the post office originally gave us a different zip. We have been receiving the mail previously sent with the wrong zip code. Our phone and email will remain the same.  Please send all postal mail to the above address.
If you have not provided the office with an email address to receive announcements please do so.

Please support these events either by the attendance of post members or donations. These parties can only be successful with your support. The residents and patients look forward to us being there, don’t let them down.  Also the State Surgeon advises that the months of January and February have been historically low for hospital visits and events. Please keep that in mind and plan a visit or bingo during these months.

The Department is currently at 81.01 % which puts us in 34th place nationally. Please get out there and recruit new members and follow up on your unpaid and expired members. If you need a list call or email the state office.

We are working with National on hosting a membership / recruiting seminar here in NJ. We plan on hosting this event on January 28, 2017 at the Hotel Somerset/Bridgewater. This is the same venue as the Commanders and VOD Dinners and will be held the afternoon of the VOD Dinner. Please mark your calendars and plan on attending both the VOD Dinner and the seminar. More information to follow.

The state office is always available to help districts and posts in any way possible.
