Legislative Update
Once again, the Legislative Update forum will feature a combination of NJSBA’s traditional forum with the session formerly held by the Garden State Coalition of Schools. It is hoped that this combined session will allow for the participation of a larger number of legislators and possibly other state officials, and provide a larger block of time for workshop participants who may also want to attend other sessions that overlap this popular annual forum. Owing to the larger-than-anticipated turnout we’ve experienced in recent years, this year’s update will also feature a larger room to comfortably accommodate more workshop participants. Please come with your thoughtful questions for what we anticipate will be a great, collegial experience with our elected officials.

Members of the New Jersey State Legislature have been invited to participate.
