Organization Membership

"The New Jersey Highlands Coalition is a critical partnership for us because we multiply our strengths in influencing land use policies in the Highlands and, as a result, help protect our clean water."

Bill Kibler, Director of Policy & Science, Raritan Headwaters Association

The New Jersey Highlands Coalition and its member organizations form valuable partnerships:

Why Become a Member?  By joining the New Jersey Highlands Coalition you are joining a powerful platform of like-minded organizations with whom you can network, share experiences and promote your mission. In addition to supplying a unique forum for the exchange of ideas, the Coalition assists its members directly by providing support and access to information and resources that can aid them in accomplishing their own missions.  Your membership also reinforces the Coalition’s extensive legislative advocacy and public outreach efforts to build a sustainable Highlands, now and for the future. If the New Jersey Highlands mean anything to you and if you want to see northern New Jersey’s water supply and other resources protected, then please get involved now. 

Our Affiliate members include grassroots, regional, statewide and national groups; located both within and outside of the Highlands. An Affiliate member organization automatically holds a seat on our Policy Committee, which meets regularly to discuss and determine the focus of the Coalition's work. Through this forum, Voting Members play a vital role in formulating the direction and work of the Coalition. Associate members enjoy all of the benefits of Affiliate membership but do not have the added responsibility of attending Policy Committee meetings and of voting.
