    Welcome to the new home of the New Jersey Academy of Science!  

    Take a look around and see your dues at work.  The new website houses all the same information as the old site as well as archives of the Bulletin and the Newsletter, which can be found in our members-only section.  The members-only section will become available when currently active members login to the website with their username and password.  For those of you that are not currently active members, please become one by registering today.   

    This new website allows us to automate membership renewal as well as registration for the annual meeting which will be hosted by Raritan Valley Community College on April 19th 2014.  

    Check back on regular basis for updates on the meeting and our other activities.   The website also allows us to send regular e-mail blasts out to our members so be on the look-out for e-mails coming from NJAS as opposed to Noemy Gaitan who has been handling e-mail notification.


    Eric Iannacone

    President, New Jersey Academy of Science
