PANJ meetings, events and noteworthy news related to the legal profession! Electronic format only.
PANJ utilizes Constant Contact to keep in touch, forward notice of events, etc.
PANJ utilizes a Forum for attendees to register and pay for upcoming events. Click Forum to visit!
PANJ Members receive discounted event attendance, access to the Job Bank and additional discounts from third party sponsors!
The Forum contains two Boards:
1. the GENERAL Board for upcoming events which are listed as threads. Each thread includes a link for both members and non-members to register and pay for a particular event. Recent editions of Perspective are also accessible on this Board; and
2. the MEMBERS Board to access the Job Bank and additional discounts from third party sponsors.
MEMBERS, YOU MUST REGISTER BY CREATING A USERNAME AND PASSWORD ON THE FORUM in order to obtain the discounted event attendance fee, access the Job Bank and additional discounts from third party sponsors. (See top right hand corner of Forum Home Page.)
MEMBERS, if you do not create a username and password on the Forum, you will automatically be charged full price for any events.
Your username must be professional.
YOU MUST USE THE SAME EMAIL ADDRESS CONNECTED WITH YOUR PANJ MEMBERSHIP.
Once your registration is complete, please allow 5-7 calendar days to process. You will receive an email thanking you for activating your ProBoards (Forum) account. Thereafter, the discounted event attendance fee, access to the Job Bank and additional discounts from third party sponsors will be granted.
Access to the Job Bank and additional discounts from third party sponsors expires once your PANJ membership lapses. You will still be able to register for upcoming events but you will be charged full price.
NON-MEMBERS, visit the Forum to register and pay for upcoming events. However, in order to qualify for discounted event attendance, access the Job Bank and additional discounts from third party sponsors, you will need to become a member of PANJ. Visit the Membership Page!
