NJCCA President's Message
by Valerie Camara
To the Membership,
Well the year is off to a running start and NJCCA is working on hosting a number of programs in the coming months.
The board and committee leaders continue to work on developing programs that will appeal to our members. We should be thinking about how we can do our jobs in the most efficient manner. This may be the appropriate time for each of us to conduct a self evaluation to determine what I can improve upon that will make me more of an asset to the company. Are there areas of my practice that would benefit from an update? Do I have the necessary business and management skills, to enable me to provide value to my clients and be able to work with them to develop the right strategy for the business?
Our Career Management & Transition Committee is an active committee that continues to look for opportunities to host programs and networking events that will provide our members with an arsenal of tools that they can use in their professional development and with managing their careers.
As we all look at ways to improve our substantive and professional skills and continue to add value to our companies, NJCCA seeks to provide you with those opportunities. If you have a suggestion for a program, please feel free to contact your NJCCA committee chairs or me to brainstorm about creative ways that we may be able to assist our members. Our events calendar is being updated with programs that we hope will entice our members to join us at our upcoming CLE programs, committee meetings or networking events.
ACC is a great resource for all of its members, including those that find themselves in transition. For any of our members that are concerned about maintaining their membership, I would suggest to you that now is the most critical time to stay connected to ACC not only for the substantive resources that it provides, but for the network of in-house counsel that it connects you to. Also, if your find yourself in transition, ACC and the NJ Chapter provides its members with resources that may be of assistance. ACC also provides a discounted rate for our members that are in transition (All you need to do is complete the In Transition Waiver of Dues Form).
I would also ask members to review, at your convenience, the NJCCA Refund Policy that the board adopted last month.
I hope to see you at some of our upcoming events!
