On Friday, Jan. 6, some 50 NJEA members attended a networking event for early career members. The event was one of several held recently by #teamnorth — a group of connected early career NJEA members working and living in the northern counties of the state. The event was first announced on the events page.
The members who organized of the event gave a short presentation thanking members for attending and reviewed the importance of events like this to build solidarity for NJEA members. Members in attendance received a calendar of upcoming #teamnorth events planned for the remainder of the school year.
At the event, members signed a petition expressing their support of including Ambassador Phil Murphy’s name on the ballot in June’s Democratic Primary election. In October 2016, NJEA’s Political Action Committee endorsed Murphy for the Democratic Gubernatorial Primary. Members can learn more about Phil Murphy’s candidacy here at njea.org/murphy.
Stay tuned to the upcoming events page for more #teamnorth networking events.
