2016: Celebrating 30 Years of Lead New Jersey



For 30 years, Lead New Jersey has been committed to developing new cadres of leaders from the private, public, and non-profit sectors who are conversant in state public policy issues and passionate about making our State a better place to live and work.

The accomplishments of our Fellows over the past three decades, as well as our own success of establishing a growing network of over 1500 talented leaders, calls for celebration.

In preparation for the 30th Anniversary celebration, we asked the Lead New Jersey community to identify individuals that have made New Jersey a better place to live and work through their profound leadership and commitment to our state and its residents. The following thirty unique and influential individuals were recognized at the LNJ 30th Anniversary gala:
