Committees

How We Operate

Our committees are comprised of volunteers from the Nutley community. We work together to raise money, approve and qualify grants and also raise awareness of the Nutley Educational Foundation within our community. In addition to our board positions, several committees have been established to further our efforts!

The Public Relations Committee

Chairs: Brigette Windheim & Melissa Blum

The Public Relations Committee meets monthly to develop, market and communicate Nutley Educational Foundation information via interpersonal relations, technology, the NEF website and social media.

The committee also prepares and distributes press releases, bi-annual newsletters and maintains the NEF website and social media communications with parents and the community.
