June 26, 2012 | The NADRA NJ Board would like to thank everyone that attended the meeting on June 12th, 2012 at the Chimney Rock Inn.  We had a decent turnout and had a very good meeting.  Mike and Jenny Beaudry made the trip out to attend, as well.  It was great to have them there.  Thanks for coming out, guys!!

Thank you WPFailSafe for sponsoring the NADRA NJ meeting.  Alan Weiner explained all of the components of the collapsible concrete footer form and demonstrated how easily they can be assembled.  We even had a friendly competition between builders to see who could do it the fastest.  Congratulations, Dan Miles!!!

Our speaker for this meeting was Kim Griffin from Griffin Consulting Partners.  The main topic was the importance of communication.  She explained the different types of mediums used and also the components and strategies of good communication.

Bill Lecorchik did a quick recap of the last term of the outgoing board members and thanked them for all that they have done.  We voted in the new board members – Marty Coffey for President, Bill Lecorchik for Treasurer and Judy Verblaauw for Secretary.  Marty also appointed Dan Miles as Vice President.  Marty spoke a little about his goals for his term as president and following is a statement from our new president:

“I would like to thank Rob and Lainie for their service.  We are depending on their guidance in the near future.  I couldn’t ask for a better team than the team in place now.

We recently purchased a show booth set up for conventions to be used at NADRA events.   We need a volunteer with some space we can use to set it up and change the signage. The booth is 20’ long X 8’ high.  It is now packaged in 4 large crates. If you have the space …call Marty ASAP at 732 895 3279.

We are planning a fishing trip.  We will send an email with the specifics.  I hope everyone can join us…it will be a lot of fun.

Don’t miss the next chapter meeting in August.   We will have door prizes, 50/50, questionnaire to learn what you want from NADRA and will be creating committees.

Thank you.

Martin Coffey”

Our next meeting will be on August 14th at The Chimney Rock Inn.  We hope to see everyone then!!
