HGANJ Member Benefits


HGANJ members enjoy several benefits of their membership, including:

  • Professional networking opportunities

  • Continuing education opportunities (including CEU credits available for genetic counselors)

  • Notification of local job opportunities through advertisements and word-of-mouth

  • A sense of community among genetics professionals in New Jersey

  • A forum in which to learn about, discuss, and potentially influence professional issues (licensure, billing/reimbursement, etc.)



Here is what a few of our members have to say about being involved in HGANJ:

"Being a member of HGANJ helps me feel less "isolated" by learning about different areas of our complex field and I enjoy keeping in touch with the larger genetics community in our state".  (NJ genetic counselor)


"Membership allows me to stay informed about the science and policy affecting my practice in the state of NJ." (NJ genetic counselor)


"Coming to HGANJ meetings gives me a chance to work with genetics colleagues from across the state and learn about current advances in our field." (NJ genetic counselor)


"I ended up getting a job as a result of a contact I made at a HGANJ meeting.  I cannot say enough about the power of local networking!"  (NJ genetic counselor) 


"The salary survey conducted by HGANJ helped me negotiate a significantly better salary than I was initially offered when I accepted a new genetic counseling position."  (NJ genetic counselor)
