I have been involved with NJPO since 1981. It is an organization truly dedicated to sound planning in New Jersey and provides invaluable assistance to local zoning officials.

As the Executive Director of the American Planning Association in New Jersey and an elected official, I can't say enough about the value that NJPO brings as a partner organization advancing sound planning as well as a group that provides so much training and educational opportunities for professionals and volunteers throughout the State.

I certainly give NJPO high marks and I'm looking forward to working with them in the upcoming year!

Being a newcomer, NJPO has offered me the best opportunities in advancing my knowledge and staying current in land use administration. Looking forward to the next webinar.

I have been affiliated with the New Jersey Planning Officials since 1990 and have proudly served it in numerous capacities. Founded in 1938, NJPO is the oldest planning, zoning and land use organization in New Jersey and one of the oldest of its kind in the United States. NJPO provides municipal officials in the land use process with a non-partisan storehouse of substantive and procedural information, training, legal counsel and support. NJPO also tirelessly and effectively advocates for the ethical and independent administration of planning and zoning matters.

I have been belonged to the New Jersey Planning Officials since 1990. The NJPO, formed in 1938, is the oldest leading source of planning information and expertise to planning and zoning board members in our state. NJPO is staffed by dedicated experts and numerous unpaid volunteers who give significant quantities of their time and expertise for the training and education of new and experienced board members, zoning officers and administrators. NJPO also acts as a trusted advocate for municipal autonomy and "home rule" in the formulation and enforcement of planning law and regulations.

NJPO plays a critical role in NJ in advancing comprehensive land use planning in New Jersey. Their newsletter keeps professionals up-to-date on new developments in the field. Their events help planning board members obtain training on best practices and network with other professionals. As an organization that promotes smart growth in New Jersey, New Jersey Future (where I work) relies upon NJPO to help us connect with the many members of planning boards and zoning boards who are responsible for doing land use planning and regulation on the front lines. We appreciate NJPO!

As a planning and economic development professional in Massachusetts, I often have need to benchmark practices and policies against other jurisdictions. the NJPO has been very helpful in either providing me with the information that I need or in directing me to the proper resource. From what I have seen, I am also envious of the educational resources that they provide within the state.

I am a professional planner and have been associated with NJPO since 1991. It is truly a remarkable institute and provides a much needed service to both members and non-members alike. NJPO serves as a great forum for the candid exchange of ideas. They often partner with other similar missioned non-profits.

I have been associated with NJPO for more than 40 years and currently serve as a professional advisor. I also volunteer to teach courses every year for the volunteer members of Planning & Zoning Boards throughout New Jersey. These courses are very important to the functioning of these boards in the State's 566 municipalities. NJPO quietly and efficiently provides additional support services to the municipalities in New Jersey.

I've been associated with Great Nonprofits since 1975. They provide great service to Municipal Governments and sponsor great conferences. The forum is great for planners to exchange ideas.
