Message from the President

Dear Members,

As always I hope this message finds you well. It has been almost two months since the launching of the new website. Slowly but surely we are ironing out the kinks and headed in the right direction. In an effort to build the specification library, if you have any that you would like to share with the membership, please email them to me at president@gpanj.com

We will also be sending out a weekly update to share news and events with you. It is our goal to keep you informed on current matters happening in the government that affect the work you do. Also, time is running out to obtain your CEUs from the 2021 Symposium. If you have not already completed the survey, please do so. Effective March 12, 2022 access to the survey and CEU retrieval will no longer be available.

In closing, our next membership meeting is Thursday, March 10 th . You can register for this meeting on our website. I hope to see you there!

Stay well, stay safe!!

Thank you,


Lori Siemon

President, GPANJ
