Now Accepting Nominations for NJSA Board

"I became involved with the NJSA Board Of Directors through a referral of a past board member. Serving on the board has rewarded me in many ways not the least of which is that I have the opportunity to help shape our industry through the education of the staffing community in NJ. Active participation in NJSA strengthens our association and thus, strengthens our industry." - Steve Yetter, Atlas Data Systems. 

 "One of the highlights of my career in staffing has been my participation in the association, first as a member and ultimately as a board member. It has provided me with an opportunity to continuously learn about our industry, colleagueship when I needed it most and the ability to give back to an industry that has served me well. I encourage all Staffing Professionals to consider volunteering to join the Board of the NJSA. It will be an extremely rewarding experience." - Elaine J. Balady, CPC, President, The Assurance Group. 

Consider joining the NJSA Board of Directors and volunteer your time and expertise to help our industry grow.
