Report Writing Workshop
There will be two Report Writing Workshops on November 23rd, 2021. One in-person workshop at Headquarters at 10:00 a.m. and a Zoom workshop at 7:00 p.m. To register, contact Barbara McCloskey, email@example.com or call 973-625-9416. Include your name, club, morning or evening workshop and any questions you have.
In the late 1890’s quarry companies were blasting down the Palisades and The Woman’s Club of Englewood was concerned about losing this irreplaceable landscape. They asked the New Jersey State Federation to assist in stopping this destruction and the rest is history. Does your Club have any concerns that they would like to address?
If so, consider writing a Resolution to help get the support of your fellow club members. Your Resolution does not have to be perfect; the Resolution Committee will help polish it up for presentation. Contact NJSFWC Legislation/Resolutions Chairman, Chris Sienkielewski, with any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org.
