Sofa Dinner May 2nd 2014
On May 2, 2014 a contingent of NJAALEOA members attended the 2014 Society of Asian Federal Officers dinner - scholarship gala. The 23rd annual event was very well attended. Our own Nelson Chen who is also a SOAFO member was on stage to make the opening remarks and presentation to Ms. Rae Kim and Mr. Richard Lewis who are the principals to SAFE Benefits Consulting Group. Nelson who is a very through person with any endeavor he handles just stop short of letting the audience know of Rae's and Richard's shoe sizes and their preference of toothpaste. None the less we are very proud of Nelson and kudos to Rae and Richard for being SOAFO's civilian of the year award recipients.

On April 16th, 2014 members of the association met with the honorable Union County Prosecutor Grace Park. Prosecutor Park is the first Asian American female county prosecutor in New Jersey. The meeting was very productive as Prosecutor Park was informed of the history of the NJAALEOA, how the association has assisted law enforcement entities in the past, our community outreach endeavors and the language skill set many of our members possess which may be helpful with a variety of law enforcement issues.
