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.
