On Nov. 1, 2011 Sustainable Jersey announced its 2011/2012 Board of Trustees led by Chairperson, Pam Mount, who is a Lawrence Township Councilwoman and the former Chair of the New Jersey State League of Municipalities’ Mayors’ Committee for a Green Future. The newly formed Board includes New Jersey’s most accomplished leaders in municipal governance and sustainability, including mayors, sustainability experts, accomplished scholars, corporate leaders and innovators.
"We are extremely fortunate to have such talented people join Sustainable Jersey," said Donna Drewes, Co-Director of the Institute for Sustainability Planning and Governance at the Municipal Land Use Center at The College of New Jersey and Sustainable Jersey founding partner. "Each Trustee brings extensive experience and his/her leadership is something that will be an invaluable asset as Sustainable Jersey strives to expand its reach across New Jersey to support every town that pursues a comprehensive sustainability program through our municipal certification program."
In just over two years, Sustainable Jersey's 350 participating communities now represent over half of the state's municipalities and nearly 75 percent of its population. Due to its rapid success, representatives of Sustainable Jersey are strengthening the organization with the addition of the Board of Trustees as it evolves from a partnership into a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
