Press Release: Spring 2023
It is with great joy that FLENJ announces that we have voted to amend our constitution and update the name of our organization. After a majority vote by the Board of Directors and the successful unanimous vote at our Annual Business Meeting during #FLENJAC23, we have begun the process of updating our name to the “Fellowship of Language Educators of New Jersey.”
We are proud to maintain the acronym FLENJ, which has come to be associated with high-quality professional learning opportunities and advocacy in the language community. At the same time, we believe that changing the letter “F” from “Foreign” to “Fellowship” reflects the inclusive nature of our community, the will of our members, and our mission to promote language education in New Jersey.
The Fellowship of Language Educators of New Jersey will continue to provide resources, leadership opportunities, professional development, and advocacy for language education across the state. We are excited about the new name and look forward to continuing to serve the language education community of New Jersey.
As we begin the formal process of changing our name, we ask for your patience as we transition our materials, website, and other resources to our updated name. For fiscal reasons, we ask that all checks, purchase orders, and other important documents use our acronym “FLENJ” so that there is no delay or confusion with regard to financial transactions.
