Beginning October 1st, 2008, the Mid Jersey and Greater North Jersey Chapters of the National MS Society became one. This merger will result in the New Jersey Metro Chapter being one of the largest organizations within the society serving almost 10,000 members living with MS, their friends and family. Our goals will be to: provide additional program opportunities, improve efficiencies, raise more money and increase our research commitment. We will do this with both offices remaining open, joining boards and working on the strengths of all staff. We welcome this wonderful opportunity to better serve you, our friends, and will continue to provide the outstanding level of service you have grown to expect from us as we move forward in striving to achieve a world free of MS.
