Our monthly membership meetings are the perfect opportunity to get to know your fellow members, have a great dinner and learn valuable information from one our many industry speakers. As a matter of fact, NJLCA membership meetings are more like monthly social events than meetings.
Our membership meetings are held at different locations throughout the year. This is due to the incredible generosity of our associate members who host our meetings at their place of business. One month we might be at a nursery, the next month we could be at an equipment vendor's facility and the following month we could be at a trailer supplier. Changing our meeting location each month keeps them fresh and interesting.
We always start off our meetings with dinner and networking. We know that you've worked hard all day and we want to make it easy for you to attend so we always provide food and beverages. This allows you to decompress and get to know some of the other members. Membership meetings and dinner are included with your membership and our menus rival some of the best restaurants and barbecue joints in the area, so nobody ever leaves hungry. We invite you to bring your employees to our membership meetings as well because when you become a member of the NJLCA your employees become members too and receive the same benefits.
What would a membership meeting be without a speaker? That's why, after dinner, we always have a presentation by an industry professional who will discuss a topic that is pertinent to you and your business, or as we like to say, our membership meetings include “dinner and a show”.
One month we might be checking out the newest plant material from Chris Rubino of Monrovia or learning how to provide better plant warranty's, the next month we could listening to John Allin or Rich Arlington talk about proper snow plowing procedures or creating snow contracts and the following month we could be learning how to keep our trucks and trailers safe and legal with a presentation by State Trooper Scott Dorrier or Jimmy Flanagan.
If you really want to learn about the NJLCA and how we can help you, please join us at our next membership meeting.
