We invite you to a cocktail reception to kick off 2020 with NJSA! Attendees will meet and mingle with the 2020 NJSA Board of Directors to learn what’s new in 2020 and how to maximize your NJSA membership.
Members from national and regional staffing firms will be on hand to tell you why they joined the New Jersey Staffing Alliance, and our valuable Industry Partners will showcase their services to assist in your company’s growth and success.
NJSA's lobbyist, Patrick Stewart from Public Strategies Impact, will also provide a brief update on the legislative and legal issues staffing firms need to know to operate successfully in New Jersey.
We are also excited to induct our first two individuals into the NJSA Hall of Fame: Jack Wellman from Wellman Insights and Vince Grillo from Access Capital. Please join us as we recognize Jack and Vince for their dedication and service to NJSA!
STAFFING HALL OF FAME - JACK WELLMAN
Jack Wellman has worked in the staffing industry since 1986 - 34+ years so far and loving every minute of it! He was Executive Vice President of Oxford and Associates (now part of ASGN Incorporated) until 1998, when he moved to New Jersey to become President of Joule Inc., headquartered in Edison NJ. Jack always valued participation in industry associations, representing Oxford since 1986 at both the predecessor of the American Staffing Association and the National Technical Services Association. Now in New Jersey, Jack not only continued his involvement in the national associations, but also joined the New Jersey Association of Temporary Services which was considering a merger with the New Jersey Staffing Association to become the New Jersey Staffing Alliance. Jack strongly believed in NJSA's mission and worked on various committees and projects to improve the future for NJSA, the industry, and its suppliers. With the sale of Joule Inc. to System One in 2013, Jack formed a consulting firm, Wellman Insights LLC, and continues to provide support and his perspectives to owners and senior managers in the staffing industry nationally. Despite moving to Massachusetts, Jack still is involved in New Jersey's staffing industry's future by providing his assistance and support to NJSA's Legislative Committee. Some people just won't go away completely!
