Communications Division
Overview

NJEA Communications is responsible for all aspects of the Association's communications efforts, both internal and external. It oversees the creation and production of all forms of printed and electronic communication from NJEA to a broad array of audiences. NJEA Communications uses multiple platforms to communicate with NJEA members, New Jersey residents, elected officials and public opinion leaders about our union's values and priorities. The division deals with all media relations and coordinates both earned and paid media efforts.

NJEA's monthly journal -- the NJEA Review -- is produced by the division. NJEA’s website, njea.org is also managed within the division.

The Division also creates and markets video and other forms of visual communication; manages NJEA’s social media properties; conducts message research; creates and upholds NJEA’s brand standards; manages the work of the Hipp Foundation; and coordinates NJEA’s Pride advertising program.

In addition, NJEA Communications helps local and county affiliates with internal communications, public relations, and community education and organizing efforts.
