Haddonfield, N.J., is a picturesque town—and now the whole state of New Jersey will be able to see that with their own eyes. 

New Jersey Monthly selected downtown Haddonfield as the area to grace its September cover for the “Our Favorite Downtowns” article. 

“We are thrilled that New Jersey Monthly selected downtown Haddonfield for the cover of its September issue,” says Haddonfield Mayor Jeff Kasko. “We have always recognized Haddonfield as a thriving and wonderful Downtown; now New Jersey Monthly readers will recognize it as well.” 

The article, a new feature, goes into detail on Haddonfield and 15 other downtowns in the Garden State. 

"New this year, the editorial staff at New Jersey Monthly chose their top 16 downtowns in New Jersey for our September issue,” says Ken Schlager, editor of New Jersey Monthly. “Downtown Haddonfield was an easy pick. We found no end to the downtown topics we wanted to cover, from sophisticated apparel boutiques, to art galleries, to the array of restaurants and well-preserved Colonial buildings.”

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Retreats and off-site meetings present wonderful opportunities for groups to collaborate, strategize and build relationships away from their normal office environments. With proper planning, these sessions can be highly effective and even pivotal in setting a new direction. However, off-sites may present some unforeseen challenges that can quickly deflate the energy in the room if not anticipated and addressed in advance.
