Here are some tips and requests for you or your group as you prepare for the NJ GSA Forum. Plan on a great experience and help your group get ready by noting the following:
1. Check in begins at 8:30 am.
2. We want to be sure that everybody knows that breakfast and lunch are included in your registration.
3. The program for the day and the titles and descriptions of the workshops which will happen in three session are now posted on this Forum websiteunder the Program tab. We encourage people coming in groups to take advantage of as many different workshops as you can so that you bring a lot of information and ideas back to your school or community. And we recommend that each person find two choices for each workshop session—just in case one is full when you go to sign up.
