2015 NJAA C onference & E xpo By William Dailey, CIS Management Inc./President, NJAA New leadership will take NJAA to new heights


he New Jersey Apart- men t As s o c i a t i on (NJAA) is known as

ciation’s activities. We believe that the answer lies in the vision David Brogan has set out for the Association. In the coming months, Da- vid will be going on what can be characterized as a listen- ing tour. The purpose of this endeavor is to hear from you about the Association’s suc- cesses and activities, as well as where you feel the Asso- ciation can improve. David assured me that his door is always open and he is eager to hear from you. We believe that the new di-

with over 20,000 members, David was the go to person on key legislative and regulatory issues that impacted the busi- ness community. David also ran the New Jer- sey Organization for a Better State Political Action Commit- tee (NEW JOBS PAC) for four years. Under David’s leader- ship, NEW JOBS became the fastest growing and largest ideological business PAC in the State. Legislators and candidates now strive to be endorsed by the NEW JOBS PAC and David believes he can implement similar strate-

gies for the NJAA PAC. The coming months and years are critical for the As- sociation. At the same time, the political environment in which we operate is in a state of flux. Governor Christie’s intentions and schedule are unknown. It is also unclear how the legislature will try to position itself during this time and if Senate President Stephen Sweeney will run for Governor. This uncertain political envi- ronment creates a sense of ur- gency and highlights the need to raise the bar on the Asso-

rection is not only in the best interest of the Association, it will take the Association to new heights. David’s impec- cable reputation and record of achievements alone will immediately raise the profile of the NJAA and the industry. David’s strategic thinking and vision will reinvigorate and refocus the NJAA’s efforts toward serving our members’ needs, and David’s relation- ships with key decision mak- ers in the Legislature and the Christie Administration will enhance our government af- fairs activities. n

ways sought to enhance its reputation as well as the level of service we provide to our members. In that vein, we are proud to announce that we have hired David Brogan as our new Executive Director & Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and Busi- ness Development. David will develop and im- plement a strategic plan for the association designed to increase membership and revenue, elevate our govern- ment affairs activities on both the state and local levels, enhance our member benefits and education, and raise the stature of both the NJAA and the NJAA PAC. David brings with him 17 years of experience in Tren- ton, along with a diverse skill set and a reputation for effective leadership. In his most recent role as First Vice President of the New Jersey Business and Industry Asso- ciation (NJBIA), David managed legislative and regulatory issues pertain- ing to tax, economic develop- ment, labor, environment, and energy policies.
