Dear Members of NJ Chapter of Fulbright and Guests:

We wish to invite you to our fall meeting. As usual, we will have announcements, two or three presenters, lunch, and a chance to meet others. We are also looking for members to fulfill new initiatives and to help with the usual things that keep us going. We hope to have a book club/lunch in the late fall or winter, or even a hike, depending on the interest. We are open to all sorts of ideas and events. In fact, we could use help in getting NJ Fulbright Chapter on social media and getting things moving in that direction. We need more staff and a board of directors – please let us know of your interest at our meeting.
