NAIOP New Jersey's Core Mission is Advocacy
“Our credibility stems from our focus on being an objective advocate for the industry. We take positions based on well-founded, sound public policy; we speak as the voice of the industry to legislators and we fight for issues that promote and protect developers, landlords and owners in the marketplace.” - Jeff Milanaik, Bridge Development
NAIOP New Jersey’s credibility can be attributed to its focus on being an objective advocate for the industry. We take positions based on well-founded, sound public policy, we speak as a voice of the industry to legislators and we fight for issues we know to be of paramount importance to landlords and owners in the marketplace. The Chapter’s Legislative/Government Affairs staff includes the CEO, the Director of Policy and Communications and a contract lobbyist.
Over 150 New Jersey Chapter members are directly involved in crafting, reviewing and implementing our public policy initiatives. The Chapter’s Legislative, Regulatory Affairs, Public Affairs and Legal Action Committees are comprised of members who are expert at understanding and analyzing legislation, regulations, code proposals and court decisions to determine industry impact and craft thoughtful, balanced policies and recommendations that promote economic growth while protecting environmental resources. Special Task Forces address major and complex issues, such as COAH (affordable housing funding) and Redevelopment/ Eminent Domain.
