Meet NJEA staff, leaders, and active members working with you and for you

Take a casual, but masked and socially distant, 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 meet member-authors.

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 to learn more about the grant program.

Member Showcase – Authors’ Alley

Visit NJEA members who are published authors. They may very well inspire you to join them and take the plunge into the publishing world.
