    • 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    • New Jersey Law Center, One Constitution Square, New Brunswick

    The Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey and the New Jersey Women Lawyers Association is co-hosting a panel discussion on the "Nuts and Bolts of the Appointments Process" for the New Jersey Judiciary, State Boards, Commission, and Authorities on April 15, 2015 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the New Jersey Law Center in New Brunswick. The panel discussion will be co-hosted by a number of other specialty bars including the Asian Pacific American Lawyers Association, the Garden State Bar Association, and the New Jersey State Bar. Any individual who is interested in serving in the judiciary or on a board, commission, or authority would benefit from this panel discussion.

    Boards and commissions are designed to give citizens an active voice in their government and provide a means of influencing decisions that shape the quality of life for residents of New Jersey. Boards and commissions also play a vital role in promoting efficient, effective and honest government. Service on a board or commission is a great way to contribute to the State of New Jersey and our community, as well as an excellent way to enhance your resume, hone your expertise in a specific area, and network with similarly-minded individuals. There are a great number of boards and commissions to which the Governor and legislature make appointments to that deal with virtually all of the Departments for the State of New Jersey and public policy areas.
