Communications Division
Overview

NJEA Communications is responsible for all aspects of the Association's communications efforts, both internal and external.

It uses all mass media to inform NJEA members, education leaders, New Jersey residents, and public opinion leaders about the Association's objectives and involve residents in New Jersey public education. The division deals with all media outlets and handles NJEA's advertising campaigns.

NJEA's every-member monthly publications -- the NJEA Review magazine and the NJEA Reporter newspaper -- are produced within the division. All other print and audiovisual materials -- including brochures, pamphlets, and leadership publications -- also are staff responsibilities.

In addition, NJEA Communications helps local and county affiliate leaders apply internal communications, public relations, and mass media techniques in fulfilling their organizational objectives.

The Division also:

Co-produces Classroom Close-up, a weekly television program promoting the outstanding work of NJEA members, as well as other original video productions for both internal Association use and external use on cable and broadcast TV;

Produces technology-based communications, including the NJEA website and intranet;

Produces targeted membership publications for local association presidents, higher education members, NJREA, and Abbott district presidents.

Coordinates Read Across America; develops coalitions and alliances with business, civic, and athletic organizations; and handles fundraising and promotion of the Hipp Foundation.
