June NJBA Meeting Recap
Northwest hosted the state meeting on June 6th in Basking Ridge NJ.
The day was a huge success and we want to thank our featured speakers - David Tarpy and Tim Schuler.
We also want to thank our volunteers and the exec. team from NJBA for the assistance in presenting the meeting. We will be presenting some memories from the meeting and the presentations when we get some time to produce them.
We also want to credit our photographers. Maria Kauzmann took most of the photos. Additional images were captured by Sharon and Kevin Inglin. Great Job Everyone!
