NJCPA Volunteer AwardNJCPA Volunteer Award

“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”
~Author Unknown

The importance of volunteers to the NJCPA and communities throughout New Jersey cannot be overstated. Whether the individual acts as a volunteer leader of an NJCPA interest group, chapter, committee, as an administrator of an event or contributes his or her time and resources in support of the NJCPA in other ways, the efforts that are put forth deserve our heartfelt congratulations and recognition.
