MEET NJEA STAFF, LEADERS, AND ACTIVE MEMBERS WORKING WITH YOU AND FOR YOU

At the in-person convention, members can take a casual stroll down Main Street NJEA and meet with staff from every division of NJEA, members from many NJEA Committees, and visit the Member Showcase to talk about Hipp Grants and member-authors.

Main Street NJEA in the Virtual Exhibit Hall will provide an opportunity for making those same connections “together from home.”

MEMBER SHOWCASE – GREAT IDEAS FORUM

Members who have received grants from the NJEA Frederick L. Hipp Foundation for Excellence in Education will showcase their projects. You may be inspired to get your own Hipp Grant. Visit njea.org/hipp to learn more about the grant program.

MEMBER SHOWCASE – AUTHORS’ ALLEY
