The Advisory Council is comprised of members who represent and work on behalf of the different Regions and Divisions within our profession and state organization. Together, in harmony with representatives of AENJ Executive Board, the A.C. Council creates events and promotes the best interests of the AENJ goals and objectives. 

Our goal is to provide quality professional development for New Jersey’s art educators throughout the year.  In addition, we hope to help build a community of support that will serve to sustain our members in their artistic and educational goals.
