AN INVITATION TO JOIN THE GARDEN STATE COALITION OF SCHOOLS
On behalf of the Garden State Coalition of Schools, it is my pleasure to welcome your interest in becoming a member of our statewide association. We look forward to working with your school district and community as GSCS brings the voice of suburban school districts to our lawmakers in Trenton and the people of New Jersey.
GSCS is a member-driven, grass-roots organization that is directed by its 24 Trustee Districts. This Executive Board helps the organization decide policy and direction. All member districts are encouraged to send representatives to the Executive Board meetings, for member input and feedback contribute greatly to helping GSCS present our common denominator concerns to Trenton.
The GSCS meetings calendar can be found at our website www.gscschools.org. GSCS meetings, whether the General Membership or the monthly Board of Trustees meetings, are a valuable source of information and interaction for GSCS leadership and members. Many look forward to the meetings as a chance to network and gather critical information concerning state actions and political news.
GSCS is the only education focused advocacy group in New Jersey that represents Board of Education members, superintendents, administrators, and parents and community members. As such, GSCS is seen in Trenton as grassroots and focused on community concerns.
Dues for the 2012-2013 are $1,950. The dues are prorated to the month a district strikes its resolution to join GSCS. For further information, please see the GSCS "New Member Form" found on the GSCS website, under the “Membership Information” link.
And don’t forget to remind your community to visit our web site regularly (www.gscschools.org) for up-to-the-minute NJ education news.
We welcome the opportunity to work with your district and community as GSCS members.
If you have questions or need further information, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or 732 / 618-5755 [cell].
