A new (to me) animal-advocacy organization is quickly coming up on its annual animal welfare conference, described as “the largest on the East Coast.” Maybe others might also want to know about the Animal Welfare Federation of New Jersey (AWFNJ).
Incorporated in 1995, AWFNJ “serves as an information resource for animal welfare professionals throughout the state,” according to its newsletter. Its board of directors includes delegates from any voting member organization, and its (non-director) “members” are described as the heart of the organization. Membership fees range from $25-75.
Those who are interested in the organization can find further specifics on its website – www.awfnj.org. Its mailing address is PO Box 73, Lakehurst, NJ 08733.
Now to that annual conference, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, March 20, 21. It will be held at Rutgers’ Busch Campus Center in Piscataway. Here too, specifics on registering, prices, times, workshops, speakers and overall schedule can be found at www.awfnj.org.
AWFNJ members’ feedback is welcome here; please comment! (My questions: how many active members are there, and what are their typical AWFNJ activities?)
