Event description



The New Jersey Chapter of the National Association of African Americans in Human Resources (NAAAHR New Jersey) will host a dinner, awards ceremony, and celebration at the Robert Treat Hotel in Newark to honor leaders who have had a positive and lasting impact on our professional community. The ceremony theme of "Stepping Into Tomorrow" is perfect for our identified honorees who have continued to make clear choices around where they wanted to go, to consider the steps they needed to take to get there, and who have consistently remembered to take others with them.

In addition to the special tribute that will be presented to NAAAHR National President, William T. Rolack, we will be honoring these incredible leaders:

  • Olajide Araromi, Esq., Vice-President, Garden State Bar Association

  • Natasha Bowman, JD, SPHR, President, Performance ReNEW

  • Michael D. Fleming, MBA, President, New Jersey Chapter, Black MBA Association

You won't find another event like this one in the State of New Jersey and you'll leave understanding exactly what "Laissez les bons temps rouler" really means!!

Gentlemen should feel free to wear a jacket with or without a tie. For the ladies, cocktail attire is perfect. This includes suits, dresses, pants, etc.

What do I need to know if I am purchasing an ad for the souvenir program booklet?

All ads should be purchased and files sent to info@naaahrnj.org with the subject line: NAAAHR NJ PROGRAM AD by no later than October 19, 2018. Here is some information regarding file size/type:

File and/or image resolution should be set at 300 dpi to ensure that the final document is not pixelated when printed. Enlarging an image will lower the resolution while reducing an image will increase the resolution. Enlarging an image in a layout is NOT recommended. Images that are less than 300dpi could reproduce poorly looking fuzzy or pixelated. Images from the internet are not recommended, as most images are only 72 dpi. The recommended file is a PDF file but we will accept high resolution (300dpi) .tiff, .jpeg or the original sources file from Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator or Microsoft Publisher.
