As I take over as president of NJHEPS the first thing that I want to do is to thank our soon to be Past President, Emma Rainforth, for her hard work and dedication.  After NJIT did not extend its invitation to host NJHEPs, we saw our organization physically move from NJIT to Ramapo. With Emma's help this transition was done as smoothly as could be.  She has always stood up for NJHEPs even when the stand was not popular. In the past six months we have seen a change in our Executive Director and support staff.  Within a few short months, the new Executive Director, Gary Minkoff, has been a great asset to NJHEPS, and over the next two years, I look forward to working closely with him. Gary has been very instrumental in opening up dialogue with various departments in State government, such as the BPU and EDA.  For those of you who were fortunate to attend the Energy workshop that he put together you understand what I am saying.  Under Gary's guidance, NJHEPs is rebuilding its support organization and soon we will see the fruits of that effort.

Over the next two years I plan to rely heavily on member institutions as a whole to move the organization forward.  I plan with the help and support of our Vice Presidents and Executive Committee to firm up our rules and regulations so that our colleges and universities will feel comfortable working with us.

NJHEPS is here to support Sustainable Practices and Principles at our member institutions.  We need your feedback.  What is it that we can do for you?

Again, thank you for your support.
