Voting Information

Dear Fellow State Exempt Association Members,


On Saturday, April 17, 2021 an Executive Committee Meeting was held on Zoom at 10:30 A.M. The main topic of discussion was this year’s annual convention that was tentatively scheduled to be held in Phillipsburg on Saturday October 2, 2021. Due to the uncertainty of the future restrictionssurrounding the Covid 19 virus, it was felt that this needed to be reviewed.


Ultimately the decision was reached to abandon plans for a full convention as we know it. The plans for Phillipsburg have been cancelled. Instead there will be a walk thru registration and voting that will be held on Saturday August 21, 2021 at the Offices of the State Firemen’s Association, 1711 Route 34 South, Wall Township, N.J. 07727.


Registration and voting hours will be from 8 A.M to 12 Noon only.

 Masks and social distancing protocols will be the order of the day when inside the building.


Voting will be by Life Members and elected Delegates who shall produce the required credentials.


All Lo
cal Exempt Association Secretaries shall be responsible to furnish the properly filled out credentials to Life Members and/ or Delegates prior to the day of registration and voting. The
credentials shall be signed by the Local Exempt Secretary. BLANK CREDENTIALS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE at the registration site. BE ADVISED THAT ANYONE WHO SHOWS UP TO REGISTER WITHOUT THE PROPER CREDENTIALS WILL NOT BE ADMITTED TO THE BUILDING.


Congregating and socializing will not be permitted either in the registration area or the voting area.
Please exit the building as soon as you have completed voting. Since parking is limited please also exit
the parking lot to make room for incoming traffic
.


Thank you for your anticipated cooperation and stay safe.

FUNERAL HOME CEREMONIES

If there are any fire companies that do not have a funeral home visitation program written up, the Chaplains of the New Jersey Exempt Firemen’s Association can help.  The Exempts have a very impressive ceremony which can be read when the fire company attends the funeral home.  It is not long and is appreciated by the family to know that a deceased member is appreciated by his fellow firefighters.  Call your County Executive Committeeman, who will call the member of the Chaplains Committee who lives closest.  All that is necessary is 24 hours notice.
