Policy Committees: These committees bring together members from different types of businesses who share a common interest in a particular state issue and want to help shape NJBIA’s policy position, as well as receive timely updates on new legislation and government regulations. You can join one or several committees to receive Issue Alerts and more in-depth Issue Reports with the latest news and updates from our Government Affairs experts.
Councils: NJBIA is inviting our members to collaborate on strategies and solutions addressing today’s hot-button workplace challenges, including diversity and inclusion, advancing women’s careers, and equipping not-for-profit businesses for success. Our network of three councils allows NJBIA members to stay informed and engaged on real-time issues to enhance opportunities for business success.
Employer Legislative Committees: There is no better way to meet with your legislators, network with your colleagues, and learn about issues affecting your business than to attend your local ELC meetings. The ELCs, established by NJBIA in 1959, are independent, local organizations representing all 21 counties. ELCs meet regularly for breakfast or lunch. These meetings take no longer than 90 minutes. At each meeting, legislators, cabinet members or local officials will discuss important issues pertinent to business. You will also receive a briefing from one of NJBIA’s government affairs experts on legislative and regulatory issues affecting employers.
Online Member Communities: NJBIA offers a number of online communities where members can communicate with each other and share common interests.
