January Planning Meeting for 2014 and Beyond

Join us to discuss and implement our strategy for reaching our 2014 goals for organization, membership, fundraising and activism. We will have reports from our new membership, communications and fundraising committees.

We will also be finalizing plans for our 18th Annual GPNJ State Convention at Rutgers University. We will be discussing a new format including guest speakers, workshops, topics and goals. Our convention will have hundreds of attendees thru the use of live streaming and YouTube in addition to those present at the convention.

We hope to have our convention date, speakers and agenda nailed down by the middle of January. Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate in this important planning meeting and then in the convention itself. We need everyone's ideas and energy and commitment to make 2014 a year we can be proud of.

Nomination of all officers is a top item on our agenda. Please submit your nominations for officers asap.

A big THANK YOU to Laura and Steve for offering the use of their home, which is centrally located, for this planning meeting. Lunch will be served, but it will be a pot-luck, so please bring a dish to share.

Let us know if anyone needs a ride or help in carpooling. We will also have Skype attendance available if you arrange for it in advance. Please call or write for more information.

  • A productive and well-run meeting with a lot accomplished. Hopefully we can have many more like it in 2014.
  • Bill will bring fruit salad as usual.
  • Sorry, it will not be livestreamed yet, but the convention will be.
  • Is it okay if I attend online?
  • Is there anyone coming from the Jersey City or at least the Newark vicinity? I lost the phone #‘s that I had to some of you in the past few months because I changed my cell phone. It would be very difficult for me to get there by NJ Transit. I have not been to this location before. I also have cerebral palsy. My phone #’s are as follows: (201) 659-1686 – Home and (201) 679-3788 – Cell. My e-mail address is also lrhunt@wt.net. If carpooling arrangements can be coordinated then I expect to make it. I do look forward to coming. I thank you in advance for your assistance regarding these arrangements.

  • I will be bringing a crock of white bean soup.
  • This will be a pot-luck luncheon, so please remember to try to bring a dish to share. It would be good to coordinate somewhat so that we don’t get all desserts! I’ll be bringing the traditional Nader Parmesan. We could use a couple more main course dishes, some side dishes/snacks, drinks. OK, desserts, too .
