NJCSA appreciates our school members, and holds quarterly members-only meetings where they can meet their peers and discuss news, legislation and regulations affecting charter schools in the New Jersey. The agenda is defined by NJCSA staff. We are not able to open these meetings to vendors or Associate Members at this time. Meeting notices are emailed to the leaders of member schools who can extend the invitation to appropriate staff members; pre-registration is requested.
The New Jersey Charter Schools Association occasionally holds regional meetings for charter school leaders, regardless of member status with NJCSA. These meetings are informal and designed to support open and honest dialogue in a safe environment, and were created to enable school leaders and administrators to meet face-to-face and network and discuss issues directly affecting them. Although facilitated by NJCSA staff, the agenda is defined by the attendees. We are not able to open these meetings to vendors or Associate Members at this time. Meeting notices are emailed to school leaders who can extend the invitation to appropriate staff members; pre-registration is requested.
