While renewing….

When renewing your membership, please take a few moments to ensure that all of your contact information (Primary, Executive and CFO contacts, phone numbers, etc.) is correct in CVENT, and on our website.  Also make sure that we have the correct link posted on the NJACP website to your website by checking here.  If changes are needed, please contact Colleen Klepser via email cklepser@njacp.org, or  609-406-1400.

Renewal Note:

You will note that NJACP’s dues have increased for 2018.  This increase is intended to enhance resources within the Association to better meet the changing needs of our membership. These resources will be available to members to provide support and assistance with Medicaid as well as other issues related to Fee For Service.   Your needs will undoubtedly change over the next year or two and NJACP must be prepared to respond to those needs with appropriate and knowledgeable staff in addition to the development of resources and education/training.

NJACP has accomplished a great deal over the past three years and yet there is still much more to be done.  A detailed report regarding accomplishments to date and, more importantly, what we will be focusing on in the future, will be forthcoming.  Questions regarding dues may be directed to Valerie Sellers, vsellers@njacp.org, 609-406-1400.

There will be a $100 “early-bird” discount for all members renewing no later than August 31, 2017.

Please note that completing your information in CVENT will notify NJACP to generate and mail you an invoice, if you will be paying by check.  YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE AN INVOICE UNTIL AFTER YOU REGISTER IN CVENT.
