During May, you will receive your annual NJA dues renewal notice. Due to the circumstances, we’ve delayed this process by a month. We understand some of you might need a little more time to renew so we’ve automatically extended memberships to the end of June. If you need more time, please just reach out to our staff. We don’t want anyone to sacrifice their membership.
When this crisis passes, we know these things will be true:
As your president, I want you to know that we at NJA do understand what you are going though. The majority of those we represent consist of small firms and sole practitioners. We are working hard to ensure our organization, our firms, and our individual members stay strong. We understand that what we all had planned for 2020 has changed, and the cases and clients we promised to help have been delayed. However, delayed does not mean we do not have a job to do. In fact, it is just the opposite. We must assure our clients and staff that we are here for them, and we continue to fight.
I want you to know your association is here for you, just like you are there for your clients and staff. Our efforts are constant. Currently, we are a) preparing for the next legislative session (and a potential special session due to COVID-19), b) working diligently to protect our 7th Amendment right to a jury, c) revising our programming to ensure you have the tools you need in this new environment, d) reworking our own budget, and e) keeping our phone lines open and services running to make sure you continue to be successful.
We are grateful for your membership. We urge you to maintain that membership. You need NJA and NJA needs you. Let that mutual need guide your decision to renew your membership timely.
Kimberly Surratt, NJA President
