I have been associated with the New Jersey Planning Officials since 1968. It is an organization that provides planning and other municipal officials with training programs, useful information about changes in planning legislation, pertinent court cases and recognition of successful municipal and private planning programs within the State of New Jersey. The NJPO has provided a statewide service for planning and zoning boards since its inception and continues to serve communities through its multiple educational and awards programs.

I just saw a video of the training session offered by NJPO for those serving as the Board Chair. It was very informative and helpful as I prepare to take that role on my local zoning board. It was nice to hear that the speakers each had a different approach to chairing their boards. I will be able to use of their techniques as I assume my new responsibilities.

I have spent the past 28 years as a member of this organization. Over that period, I have had the pleasure of teaching the Board member courses and contributing to the master plan guide. The information provided to lay planning members has proven to be of great assistance to them in the performance of their duties as board members,
