Why Join NABA NNJ?

Student to student Networking

20150926_191529 NABA student members include college and graduate school students in more than 150 chapters across the country. As much as a person has friends on campus it is great to have a group of peers in the same major or related field as you. You share experiences such as finding jobs, passing classes, taking school or professional exams, and developing friends and contacts that can help you get through the transition from college to professional life. NABA provides an additional information resource to share information because your fellow NABA members really want to help you.

NABA’s Eastern Region Student Conference (ERSC)

2015 Eastern Region Student ConferenceEach year NABA hosts student conferences in 4 regions. The Eastern Region attendance is usually 500 or more students like you attending schools from Virginia to Maine and out to Pennsylvania.
