  • President's Message - July 2020

    Hello New Jersey Community, 

    To begin, I am hoping that you and your loved ones are safe, healthy, and abiding by mandates and recommendations that we know slow the spread of COVID-19. While it’s incredibly unfortunate that we haven’t seen each other face to face, I know that if we all do our part we’ll be able to with each other and those we love soon enough.

    With that said, the high levels of uncertainties have significantly impacted how we move forward with planning the rest of 2020’s events. Our community’s leadership has made the difficult decision to cancel the New Jersey SLA 85th Anniversary Celebration. However, the programming committee has already convened to identify ways to celebrate and honor our community's milestone virtually. Other traditional in-person events will likely take place virtually, too. Please reach out to me if you would like to be involved.

    In addition to our community’s event, SLA HQ has also announced that the annual conference, which was first postponed to October, will now be entirely virtual. I encourage you to read SLA’s official statement on the Coronavirus.  

    The more we as a community and as New Jerseyans keep doing our part, the closer we are to being able to celebrate being together again. If there are any resources you need, I encourage you to review the New Jersey COVID-19 site. You can also find someone to talk to by dialing 1-866-202-HELP (4357) for free, confidential support. 

    Stay safe, stay healthy, stay home when you can, 

    Angela Pagliaro
