    On Monday, September 18, NJBIA is proudly supporting a significant event that will invite stakeholders from across the state to weigh in on issues affecting the "affordability" of New Jersey and how we set a practical agenda to make our home a more affordable place to live, work and raise a family.

    Your voice is needed and we encourage you to attend. We also encourage you to reach out and invite colleagues, co-workers and people from your community to join us, since the issue of affordability impacts each and every one of us living and working in New Jersey.
