State Publications Contest

State newsletters are a great way to keep everyone across the state connected and informed about all of your state and local events. Newsletters come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and can include a variety of information. In addition to keeping JCLers informed, publications are helpful publicity tools that help JCL stay connected with the community.

If your state would like help starting or improving a JCL newsletter, please contact the NJCL Editor at
