Conference on the Impact of the Defense Industry on New Jersey

8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The Enterprise Center at Burlington County College  Mt. Laurel, NJ
The US military is the second largest employer in the state (after only the state itself) and is critical to the state's economy. The Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst alone boasts 44,000 jobs spread over 42,000 acres in Burlington and Ocean Counties. JBMDL's economic impact is a whopping and arguably irreplaceable $7.9 billion annually. And yet planners, economists and policy wonks rarely consider policies that may be needed to support this important sector of New Jersey's economy. This PlanSmart NJ conference will bring together experts for a half-day event to discuss what policies are working and what policies are needed to retain and bolster New Jersey's defense industry. PlanSmart NJ Member: $50. Non-Profit/Government: $60. Non-Member: $85 Register here

Hurricane Sandy was a wake-up call to New Jersey, one that the state's electric utilities and water companies have heeded. But as they move ahead with plans to build a more robust, reliable power grid and water infrastructure, what options are being considered and what will be its price tag? The conference will tackle those and other tough questions. NJ Spotlight's first extended-format event, this all-day conference gives panelists and participants the time they need to delve into details. Former NJ Gov. James Florio will be the guest speaker.
