The Council on State Public Affairs is an independent, multipartisan forum promoting
conversation to create sound public policy.
Our conversations bring thoughtleaders and key opinion leaders together from across
the state to provide insight into complex public policy challenges. We provide a
collaborative space for ideas and informed opinions to create solutions that will
move our state forward.
Just as New Jersey was at the heart of the American Revolution, the Council is at
the center of an intellectual crossroads. Words and ideas matter, and an informed,
engaged citizenry is an essential element of participatory democracy. In an era
where public debate is often reduced to top-of-mind comments offered on the internet
and talk radio, the Council promotes thoughtful, intelligent discussion of issues
that shape the future.
