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!

I just visited njpo.org website and found the link to chat room. What a great idea! I was able to chat with Jason Kasler that provided lots of useful information in very friendly way. Thank you so much for your help and for your time!
