Register Now for NJDA's 50th Annual Convention


From NJDA President, Gregory McGroarty

We hope you will join us as we celebrate the New Jersey Defense Association’s 50th Annual Convention at the Newport Marriott in Newport, Rhode Island.

The newly renovated Marriott has an exclusive waterfront location and is within minutes of all Newport has to offer.  The hotel offers amenities including the great room with a day/night bar, outdoor terrace and pool and a luxury spa.   Enjoy the vibrant streets and enticing waters in Newport.  You are just minutes away from the Cliff Walks, Newport Mansions and the International Tennis Hall of Fame

Our educational programs will be held on Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25, and offer 6 CLE credits, including 1 Ethics credit.  Our Seminars will include a variety of topics and speakers, including experts.

Our events begin with a Welcome Reception on Thursday evening.  There will be a cocktail reception Friday evening, followed by dinner on your own.  After the Saturday morning program, our annual golf tournament will be held nearby.  On Saturday evening, we will hold our black tie optional President’s Reception and Gala, which will include a fantastic cocktail hour followed by an evening of events and dancing.


Your reservation with the hotel must be made prior to 4 p.m. on June 2, 2016.   However, the Newport location is very popular, and we do not expect that our room block will be available until the cutoff date.  Please make your hotel reservations as soon as possible to secure a room at the Newport Marriott. 

Register Early!  Please call Executive Director Maryanne Steedle with any questions at (609) 927-1180.  I look forward to seeing you in Newport!
