NJPAC’S ADVISORY COUNCIL

The Advisory Council, created in 1997 and composed of eight committees, helps NJPAC identify and satisfy the cultural tastes of New Jersey’s many diverse communities. These groups are Celebrate Dance, Corporate, Council of Elders, Faith-Based, Internal, Jazz, Latino, and LGBTQ.

Sharing NJPAC news, serving as volunteers and promoting ticket sales are all part of the get-up-and-go required of members. By relaying the feedback they receive from constituents, members provide valuable advice and insight to NJPAC’s programmers.
