Registrar's Association of New Jersey
2014 - Membership Application
Message from the President:
I would like to wish you all a Happy, Healthy, New Year! As you know, April is right around the corner. We will be holding our spring meeting at the Edison Hotel in Edison, New Jersey. This hotel can accommodate 500 people. The classes will be held in a theatre like setting which will enable everyone to be comfortable while taking notes. Breakfast and lunch will be served in a banquet room.
The Speakers for the day will be as follows:
ID Fraud NJ Motor Vehicle Commission - 2.0 credits - NJLM14002
Speaker – Joe Vasil, Coordinator NJMVC Security/Investigation Fraudulent Document Training Unit
This is a “hands on” training approach, which will cover identity documents such as New Jersey Driver licenses, green cards, passports, etc. The benefit of this training is to reduce and recognize fraudulent attempts to secure birth records and other documents that the Registrar distributes.
State of New Jersey, Department of Health – 3.0 credits - NJLM14003
Speakers –Vincent Arrisi, Cathleen Bennett, Colette Lamothe-Galette & Yamileth Contreras, NJ Bureau of Vital Statistics
Vital Information Platform: The new electronic vital information system that will include births, fetal deaths, marriages, civil unions, domestic partnerships and deaths. The first module will only have births and fetal deaths. The training at the meeting will be for the first module and the role of the local registrar in the registration process along with specific system training that will cover step by step instruction on reviewing, accepting and certifying those documents.
The cost for the day will be $35.00 per person. I have posted the registration form as well as the agenda for the day. You will be receiving six CMR credits for the day. One for our business meeting and five for our speakers.
I have also posted the 2014 membership form on the website. Please fill out the application and send it with your payment to Lynda Branick. The fee is $25.00 per member (not municipality).
I look forward to seeing all of you at the spring meeting. If you have anything that you feel needs to be addressed or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 201-943-1700 ext. 6007 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
