Convention is coming

Wildwood ConventionThe 2018 Annual Detachment of New Jersey Convention will take place in Wildwood, NJ on June 7-8, 2018. The Call to Convention and convention packets have been mailed to squadrons for whom the Department has Officer forms. All convention forms, except the Consolidated Report Form, are also available on the Forms page of the Detachment website. If your squadron requires a Consolidated Report Form, please contact the Detachment Adjutant. We encourage you to fill out the Consolidated Report form, as this is the basis for most of the Detachment awards, and also provides a record of the work the squadrons of New Jersey have done during the year. Please note that all membership awards are based upon the membership of the squadrons as of the Delegate strength date (April 8, 2018).

If you wish to run for an office in the Detachment, and you have not yet sent in your paperwork, please bring your paperwork to the convention to verify your eligibility. Please adhere to the deadlines for submission of any paperwork, and contact the Detachment officers with any questions. Please join us at convention and add your voice to help guide the Detachment of NJ in the coming year.
