During the first week of July every year, local association presidents and membership chairpersons receive an email invite to NJEA’s member engagement tools order form. Pictures of some of 2016-17’s offerings are below. Items not pictured below are linked to PDFs on the order form. Make sure to click on the order form to see all of this year’s offerings as well as helpful links that apply to each.
3. NJEA member lifeline portfolio *NJEA’s most popular new member organizing tool ever! *Some assembly required.
The member lifeline portfolio is an accordion style binder with twelve pockets for members to store their professional resources. The portfolio is completely customizable. Click here for our list of recommended items. Some of the contents will be provided by NJEA, and some can be provided by the local association. Locals can supplement the portfolio’s contents with resources of their own choosing.
Added on 9.6.16: No accordion style, plastic folders are produced anywhere in the USA. The shipping vendor on these is a USA vendor; the source vendor is in China. It is not possible to have the Made in China labels removed prior to shipping as Chinese customs will not allow exports without them. Our choice was either to stop offering this product as part of our member engagement tools offerings or accept the labels, and we chose the former. NJEA staff will approach the NJEA Membership Committee about discontinuing this resource next year as members and NJEA staff are clearly uncomfortable with these labels. If you do not see this offering next year, it’ll be a safe bet that this is the reason why. If you know of an alternative product that we could offer in place of the accordion style folders, please let us know. Questions? Email Jim at email@example.com.
NJEA members need to consider their financial future. This tri‐fold brochure identifies many of the consumer benefits of NJEA membership. (NOTE: this is included with each lifeline portfolio mailing.)
