Your New Member Welcome Kit  

Every October, NJEA begins to mail New Member Welcome Kits to each of its new members.  These continue to be sent throughout the year as membership applications are received.  Last year’s version of the kit can be found here on NJEA’s Instagram.  The highlight of the kit is the publication, Your NJEA Membership Matters

If you are a new member and have not received your Welcome Kit by December 1, please email NJEA field representative Jim Boice at jboice@njea.org.
