The New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association Keeping the Garden State Green

 In forty-six years, the New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association (NJLCA) has  grown from five members to over 19,000 and has given a voice to the Garden  State’s professional landscape contractors, who strive to make New Jersey a more  beautiful place.

 The NJLCA is dedicated to advancing the integrity, proficiency and continued  growth of the landscape industry and offers its members a variety of services  from planning and design to installation and maintenance, which are oriented to  the needs of each client. The organization also has a discount program that offers members on discounts on  custom clothing, nursery stock, equipment, machinery and financial services.  

 NJLCA members attend monthly membership meetings with networking and educational  opportunities geared toward today’s market, alerts of legislative changes and affiliations with other  organizations. NJLCA also publishes The New Jersey Landscape Contractor  magazine three times a year that offers news briefs, informative articles and  interviews with landscape professionals.  

 Member Benefits

 “There are so many benefits to being NJLCA member,” says Jody Shilan, MLA, NJLCAs’ executive director, and a Wyckoff-based landscape design consultant. “We are very pro-education here. One of the most important things we do here is  we provide incredible amounts of classes for our members. Even our monthly  membership meetings have an education component. At our most recent meeting, we  had two state troopers and an attorney come and do presentations. The troopers  discussed ways that our members could operate their equipment safely on the  highways and the attorney reviewed contract documentation to ensure that you’re compliant to the rules and regulations of law to New Jersey.”  

 The New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association recently launched NJLCA  University, a series of one- and two-day educational workshops and seminars.  The university was conceived to provide more in-depth information for the  company owner or employee, who wants to improve his/her business skills—an area where contractors can fall short.
