Joanie has been a member of NOW for over 40 years. In 1973, when Joanie became friends with the NOW-NJ Education Task Force Chair, she decided to help with typing reports to keep her typing skills fresh. Four decades later she’s still transcribing Minutes for NOW-NJ!
In 1975 Joanie convened the Westfield Area (NJ) NOW chapter and was elected its first Chapter President. Westfield Area and Union County (NJ) NOW merged 25 years ago, and Joanie currently serves as the Union County NOW chapter’s Secretary.
She has attended almost every National NOW Conference since 1982 as a delegate from Union County NOW. Joanie’s has spent most of her working years in office support/office manager, which makes the position of Secretary a ‘perfect fit’. She is currently the Acting Secretary for NOW-NJ and has served as NOW-NJ Secretary in five NOW-NJ administrations.
