September/October Update from the President

It seems our summers have come to an end.  Despite everything that has been happening over the past few months, I sincerely hope you were able to find some time to recharge your personal battery. Looking at the year ahead reminds me very much of sitting in bumper to bumper traffic on the parkway with 100 miles left until my exit.  Hopefully, your phone is at least over 75% and you have a good podcast/Audiobook/Spotify playlist/radio station to get you through it.  Fortunately for us all, my update for this month is full of good news and exciting announcements!

Seattle NACAC
I am very excited for this conference.  For those of you who are planning to attend in person, we will be hosting a gathering on Thursday, September 24, 2021 at 5 PM.  There will be food!  There will be drinks!  We will even be conveniently located in the convention center!  Please fill out THIS FORM so we get a better idea of who will be attending!

Make SURE your voice is heard! #NACAC voting members will decide on our president, board members, & Bylaws. Your votes count! In fact, they count A LOT. The quorum for #NACAC’s Annual Member Vote is 10% of all eligible voting members. Check your email inbox for your voting credentials today. FAQs, NACAC contact info, & more at www.nacacnet.org/membervote2021. Spread the word to your coworkers as well!  With NACAC’s new membership model, some of your peers may be voting members for the first time.  

NJACAC Imagine Grant
The NACAC Imagine Grant has been suspended for this year.  Instead, NACAC has evenly distributed funds amongst its 23 affiliates to create their own versions of the Imagine Grant!  NJACAC leadership has several ideas on how to allocate these funds.  More information will be announced soon, but know we plan to utilize all funding to directly benefit our members!

Dates to Remember

Looking forward to connecting with you all this recruitment season!  As always, don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Michael Cartusciello
NJACAC President, 2021-22
