Short notes of interest to and about our members
Call for Volunteers: Get Involved in NJCCA!
NJCCA is soliciting volunteers to help us with our various activities, including our major events (i.e., our Spring Cocktail Reception on 5/11; Golf Outing on 6/14; All Day Conference on 9/24; and Annual Dinner in November), fundraising activities, charitable events, and social networking initiatives, among other things.
Becoming more involved in NJCCA will hopefully improve your membership experience, enable you to network with peers, and offer you the opportunity to help contribute to the New Jersey in-house legal community.
If you are interested in becoming move involved with NJCCA, please contact NJCCA's Executive Director, Gail Girard, on (609) 312-7772 or at email@example.com.
Social Networking and the NJCCA
Earlier this year the NJCCA joined the world of online professional networking. Because the success of online networking is predicated on building enough participation for ongoing conversations, we are very interested in asking you to join, participate and let us know if you see benefit in these activities. We hope you agree with us that online professional networking is a new and compelling way for NJCCA members to discuss issues and solicit ideas inbetween NJCCA events and seminars.
If you are interested in joining our private group on LinkedIn, please contact NJCCA Board Member, Eugene Weitz via his LinkedIn site at http://www.linkedin.com/in/eugeneweitz or go directly to http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=1590257&trk=hb_side_g and request to join. Currently, this 163 member group is private and limited to in-house counsel in New Jersey (and in-house counsel that qualify and are or may be interested in becoming members of the NJCCA).
In addition to maintaining a LinkedIn presence, we have also established an NJCCA group on Martindale-Hubbell Connected (which is affiliated with LexisNexis' subsidiary Martindale-Hubbell) one of the only online professional networking sites specifically for lawyers. In addition to creating a general NJCCA Community, we have also created Communities for each working NJCCA Committee . Go to http://www.martindale.com/connected and sign up (see below if you are not currently a member) and then search for the NJCCA Communities. We have structured our group for privacy so you can decide who and how you are contacted by non-NJCCA members.
If you have any questions or concerns prior to joining, feel free to contact Eugene Weitz at (908) 337-1491.
