AUSA's Northern New Jersey Chapter is a dynamic and growing chapter that is doing a great deal to support AUSA's mission of 'Voice for the Army - Support for the Soldier'. The chapter boasts a strong Young Professionals program and excellent support for Corporate Members, combining both with high quality networking events. Despite the lack of a major Active Army presence in the chapter's footprint, the chapter's robust support of Guard and Reserve units in its area, alongside its other New Jersey chapter partners, resulted in the 42nd Infantry Division (Guard) and the 99th Regional Support Command (Reserve) being named as the Guard and Reserve units with the largest AUSA membership in 2016. Chapter membership offers a great opportunity to get involved at the grassroots level and to make a real difference in the community.
