The CPPNJ Candidates’ Organization

The CPPNJ Candidates’ Organization (CO) is a support network for the professional needs of candidates as well as an advocate for issues of concern to those in training at CPPNJ. The Candidates’ Organization is also a vehicle through which candidates can volunteer to be a part of the Candidates’ Organization committees and projects. The CO arranges its own programs of interest and relevance to its members as well as occasions for socializing.

The CO is open to all CPPNJ candidates in good standing.  Upon acceptance  for training, each candidate is assigned a CO Mentor, who acquaints the candidate with the practical details of study and helps him or her become an integrated member of the CPPNJ community.

The CO has its own by-laws and elects the officers of its Executive Committee every two years. The CO also elects candidate representatives to CPPNJ’s Board of Directors and Training Committee.

All CPPNJ students are encouraged to become actively involved in the Candidates’ Organization. Dues are $40.00 per academic year to participate in the CO programs.
