      Judge Bowry –

      I am pleased that you are interested in attending the 2012 and no, you do not need to be a member to attend the program. At this time, there isn’t a tentative agenda. We are just finalizing the plans for our 2011 conference in Las Vegas and the plans for the 2012 conference will begin sometime the the Fall.

      Please send your contact information to me at and I will make sure the 2012 NASJE President, Joseph Sawyer, has your information.

    Dear Judith (or Exhibit manager):

    We would be interested in exhibiting at your Annual Conference in August. If possible, please send me a prospectus or other information (registration contract, booth cost, expected number of attendees, etc.).

    Thank you!

      I am the curernt Treasurer of NASJE.
      The Board of NASJE will meet the end of February and set the registration fee at that time. It will likely be somewhere around $550 – 600. It covers materials and events including several meals. You can see above, the hotel room rate is $189 single/double. Feel free to email me if you need more information.
