President's Message for 2022-2023 Program

Dear Members,

 I hope this letter finds you all doing well. Entering my second year as president, I am extremely excited to return to a more normal, post-COVID North Jersey Water Conference. The pandemic was very tough on our organization, as it limited our ability to interact, network, and socialize with our peers. On behalf of the board of the North Jersey Water Conference I want to thank you for your continued support of this great organization as we enter the Conference’s 79th year. 

Your Board Members have been hard at work through the summer months preparing a fresh and exciting schedule for the 2022-2023 term, starting off with our newest event, the Beefsteak and Vendor Show. We will also be adding some new venues, bringing back some old favorites, and providing some great training opportunities for all of our members. 

We have continued to expand our website with online registrations, payments, and updates with news and information about the conference and it’s happenings. We also have shifted much of our communication to text messaging, which I believe has greatly increased member communication and engagement. 

We will continue to make a strong push to attract new members to the organization, and to bring back ones that we have lost along the way. This organization is all of our responsibilities, and we need every member’s help to spread the word and create real value and purpose. Although COVID may have changed the world forever, what hasn’t changed is the importance of Education, Networking, and Fellowship within our industry. I thank each and every one of you as we look forward to another successful year of the North Jersey Water Conference. 

Sincerely,
Michael Grasso
President 2021-2023
