When We Say " Register Early " – We ' re Serious Your Great Support and Participation is Very Much Appreciated
I have previously published a similar message , but in light of several recent conversations with some of our members , I think it appropriate to pass along the message once again . And that message can be summed up quite easily : Register early .
Each month at the NJSACOP State Chiefs Briefing I report on the Association ' s full slate of professional development programs , and end with the admonition ( at the risk of repeating myself ) to " register early ." That ' s not just a sales pitch – due to your great support , our programs are more popular than ever , and are selling out and filling up at an unprecedented rate .
I always say that people vote with their feet , and we are very gratified that our members clearly value the programming that we are presenting for them and their personnel . While of course this is a great thing for the Association , it ' s not so great for those who register for one of our seminars or programs , only to find out that they have been put on a waiting list . We are doing our best to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend our programs , but sometimes there is simply not enough room for everyone who wishes to attend . We ask for your understanding , and again , if you and / or members of your department want to attend one of our programs – register early .
Additionally , we are consistently moving forward with the development of new , additional professional development opportunities so as to allow as many of our members and others to take advantage of all that we have to offer . As with our current portfolio of programs and courses , these are likely to fill up shortly after being introduced . The best recommendation I can make is —” register early .”
