You are cordially invited to our 40th Anniversary Celebration Gala & Silent Auction on Thursday, October 7th at the Brooklake Country Club in Florham Park, NJ. The evening’s Keynote Speaker, Dave Robinson, is the New Jersey State Climatologist and Dave Robinson, New Jersey State Climatologista distinguished professor at Rutgers University. Dave’s focus is on the diverse weather and climate of the Garden State. His research includes topics such as climate change, drought, flooding, and issues involving agriculture, transportation, public safety, and commerce. His office provides timely information to decision makers, the research community, and the general public.  Dave is a much sought-after speaker on the critical climate issues that affect every one of us today and threaten the health and safety of our future. We are fortunate to have him join us at our special Gala celebration this year. Working together, we can protect our precious resources before they disappear from our rearview mirror.
