Welcome To Central Jersey Claims Association
The Central Jersey Claims Association (“CJCA”) is an organization of insurance claims professionals dedicated to the pursuit of professionalism in the insurance industry through education, networking, and industry alliance. CJCA members represent all types and lines of insurance throughout the state of New Jersey. The CJCA Membership program was designed to welcome and recognize those businesses interested in partnering with CJCA.
Meetings are held September through May on the third Thursday of the month at The Hamilton Manor in Hamilton, NJ
Dear CJCA Membership:
We hope this message finds you and your families well.
Due to the continued situation involving the COVID-19 pandemic, CJCA has regrettably had to cancel our monthly meetings as well as our Annual Golf Outing. This was a very difficult decision, however, the safety, health, and well-being of our Membership and the entire industry will always be our top priority.
For the remainder of 2020 we will not be meeting in person, but are excited to announce that we are hosting a webinar on October 15, 2020. The subject will be the impact of COVID-19 in Workers’ Compensation and will be presented by John H. Geaney and Katherine Geist of Capehart Scatchard. The presentation will include discussion of S2380 which was signed by Governor Phil Murphy on September 14, 2020 and created a rebuttable presumption for essential employees that contraction of coronavirus is related to their employment. Further details regarding how to sign up for and access this webinar will be provided as the date approaches. Please note that this webinar will be open to anyone who wishes to participate regardless of prior membership in CJCA, however, space will be limited. Therefore advanced registration will be required.
We are exploring a second webinar in December to close out the year and will provide further details as that develops.
CJCA would also like to announce some exciting changes for 2021. First, we are moving to a Calendar Year Membership instead of the September – August model we used in the past. Registration for 2021 membership will be sent out in December.
Additionally, we are pleased to announce a new venue for our in person meetings. Going forward, meetings will be held at Americana Kitchen and Bar located on Route 130 in East Windsor, NJ. We remain hopeful that in person meetings will commence in January 2021 at this new location.
Now is the time to expand our organization to all types of claims handling! Please share this memo with your colleagues and clients! Also, feel free to contact any board members with any suggestions you may have for topics you would like to see discussed at future meetings.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please stay safe and healthy.
