After many years at the East Brunswick Hilton, we have outgrown the space both in the physical and philosophical sense. By moving the conference to Atlantic City, we have an opportunity to re-imagine what our state conference can and should be. A committee made up of veteran conference staff, and NJMEA members who have experience attending and presenting at conferences all around the country has been meeting over the past few months to decide how we can modernize and improve the conference experience for our members. As decisions become finalized, we will share them via Tempo magazine, the website, and social media. While I know this change may seem unexpected to some, please know that we’ve been discussing this since we hosted the 2017 NAfME Eastern Division conference, and it wasn’t a decision we rushed into. I’m confident that this move will be a positive step forward for our conference. The list of all of factors that lead to this decision are too numerous to put in this message, however I’d like to highlight some parts of the conference experience that we feel will be improvements in Atlantic City. What I have chosen to highlight are the issues that most frequently have been brought up in our post-conference surveys and individual conversations I’ve had with members over the past few years.
