The NJSBA relies on its members, who volunteer their time and expertise, to lead its sections, committees and division. That service is invaluable. It supports the association's mission and its over 18,000 members. 

Being a leader is no easy feat, especially when it is done in concert with running a busy practice. Here is a library of resources to help you:
