Beware – Spam Calls to NJLM Exhibitors!

THIS IS BEING REPOSTED FROM AN EMAIL SENT BY THE NJLM OFFICES:

I have heard from numerous exhibitors that you are receiving calls from individuals claiming to be from the League, asking for credit card numbers, verifying booth information, reserve housing, etc.
These calls are NOT legitimate, NOT from the League, and they are NOT authorized to contact exhibitors.
We do not share your contact information with any of these individuals or organizations.

As a reminder: If the League needs anything from you – you will receive a direct call or email from Kristin Lawrence or Donna Bijou. Our full contact information is below.

Please be very cautious and get in touch with us if you have any questions.

The information below is posted on our website: Important Exhibitor Alerts

Important Exhibitor Alerts

As an exhibitor, you may receive emails and phone calls from various companies soliciting housing, attendee lists, etc.

These companies are NOT affiliated with the League and are NOT authorized by the League to contact exhibitors.
Do not reply to these requests.

Many of these companies retrieve your public information from the interactive floor plan and may even contact the main company number to obtain your name and direct line or email.
Your personal contact information is never posted online by the League and is only shared with the service providers authorized by the League.
The companies “pirating” these bogus “services” threaten the conference industry as they disrupt the process and cause confusion with exhibitors. They aim to scam exhibitors and attendees and have them purchase fraudulent lists or book rooms that may never be reserved. 

All official League correspondence will be sent directly from the League via an email newsletter, direct email, direct mail, or a phone call. If any correspondence is received from an unsolicited source, please do not respond to any of their inquiries.

‍ Here’s a quick checklist to keep in mind:

  • Official League Conference providers are listed in the Exhibitor Service Manual and on the League website. The League has vetted these companies and verified that they offer legitimate products and services.
  • If someone calls you from an organization, don’t assume they’re calling from that organization. Call them back on the main number. Caller ID isn’t a reliable way to verify a caller’s identity.
  • If someone emails you about something urgent, get their phone number and call them to ask questions. Don’t reply to the email and don’t send money. The ‘sender’ field can be altered and is not a reliable way to verify if an email is legitimate or not.

Please get in touch with the League directly if you have any questions or concerns.
 

File a Fraud Report – Help stop them!

If your company has received fraudulent emails or phone calls soliciting you to purchase attendee lists, book hotel rooms, or other products/services – file a report!
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has created a new process for individuals and companies to report these activities.  The FTC will share these reports with their law enforcement partners to help with investigations and stop these practices

How to file a fraud report:

  •   Go to Federal Trade Commission: ReportFraud.ftc.gov
  •   Click on “Report Now”
  •   For Question 1:  “Is your report about any of these common problems?”
        Select “An Impersonator” (top left answer)
  •   For Question 2:  “Who were they pretending to be?”
        Select “Well-known or trusted business”
  •   Click “Continue”
  •   Add as much information as you have and submit!

Thank you for helping us report these frauds – with enough complaints, we can work to stop these practices from targeting exhibitors!

New Jersey DEP Compliance Advisory!








NEW JERSEY DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
#2023-24     Issued: 12/7/2023

COMPLIANCE ADVISORY

REMINDER TO TAKE ACTION TO COMPLY WITH ENHANCED VAPOR RECOVERY EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS BEFORE DECEMBER 23, 2024


WHO IS AFFECTED BY THIS ADVISORY?

Owners and operators of any gasoline dispensing facility (GDF) constructed in New Jersey before November 9, 2017. A GDF is any stationary facility that dispenses gasoline into the fuel tank of a motor vehicle, which makes it subject to New Jersey Air Pollution Control rules for gasoline transfer operations.


WHY IS DEP ISSUING THIS ADVISORY?

On December 23, 2017, the New Jersey Air Pollution Control rules (N.J.A.C. 7:27-16.3) were amended to include Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR) standards, established by California Air Resources Board (CARB), which aim to improve the effectiveness of gas pump vapor recovery systems, reduce vapor leaks from underground storage tanks, reduce evaporation from hoses and nozzles between use, redesign of nozzles to reduce drips, enhanced diagnostics to alert attendants when vapor recovery equipment malfunctions and improve the long-term reliability of vapor recovery equipment. The regulations were implemented in two phases. Phase II standards, which
primarily affected hoses and nozzles and the decommissioning of older gas pump vapor recovery systems, was completed in December 2020. Phase I standards, which primarily involve the tanks, piping, and fill ports, require that affected equipment be “CARB EVR-certified” on or before the deadline of December 23, 2024.

Raymond R. Conley: August 1933 – November 2023








Ray Conley & Charlie CarrollIt is with great sadness that we announce the passing of the longest tenured employee here at the John W. Kennedy Company, Ray Conley. 


Ray started with the Kennedy Company back in 1970. He held several different positions at the company over the years, including purchasing, inventory control, inside sales and customer service. He was a dedicated and loyal employee.  If you had the pleasure to meet Ray, the words warm & fuzzy weren’t the first words that would come to mind.  However, if you knew Ray, you saw a very kind, caring, funny and genuine guy.   He was, as they say, “a foxhole guy!”

Ray was an athlete as well, playing baseball for the U.S. Army and a goaltender for the Rhode Island Reds of the American Hockey League. Ray was also an avid golfer and loved talking sports.

Born in Providence, he was the son of the late Joseph and Sadie (Costello) Conley, brother to the late Joseph “Bud” Conley, and survived by his sister Eleanor (Conley) Perdue. He was the loving uncle of seven nieces and nephews and eight grand nieces and nephews.

His visitation will be held Tuesday, November 14, 2023, from 8:30-9:30 AM in the Pontarelli-Marino Home, 971 Branch Ave, Providence followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00 a.m. in St. Augustine Church, 639 Mt. Pleasant Ave, Providence.

Burial with Military Honors will follow at the RI Veterans Cemetery, Exeter, RI. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to Operation Stand Down in Johnston, RI:  www.osdri.org .
