NEW JERSEY LCV EDUCATION FUND WELCOMES BOB CONLEY AS NEW BOARD CHAIR
TRENTON – New Jersey League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (New Jersey LCV Ed Fund) is pleased to welcome Bob Conley as the new chair of its board. He will replace former Chair, Cindy Enrenclou, who served on the board and as chair for the past nine years.
The New Jersey LCV Ed Fund is a non-partisan, tax-deductible non-profit that protects New Jersey’s precious natural resources by raising awareness of key environmental challenges and increasing the efficacy of the entire environmental community.
Conley has been a member of the board since December of 2018. He led and strengthened the finance committee and has been instrumental in helping organize stakeholder events to grow the organization's fundraising capabilities.
“I know that this is a critical time to take on the leadership of the board as we work to educate the residents of New Jersey about climate change, clean air, safe drinking water, land preservation, and environmental racism, but I am excited about the challenge,” said Bob Conley, Chair, New Jersey LCV Ed Fund. “I am pleased about the recent wins we’ve had on the state and local levels, and I look forward to working with our volunteers and supporters and continuing our advocacy for the environment in New Jersey.”
Since 2012, Conley has proudly served as the Mayor of his hometown of Madison, New Jersey. As Mayor, he is a champion for ideals such as: positive leadership, fiscal management and responsibility, respecting the great resource of volunteers, strengthening of partnerships within Madison and with other communities, and in reinvesting in the community.
Conley has been recognized by multiple organizations, including the Morris County Chamber of Commerce for their 2018 Leadership Morris Alumni Achievement Award; and the New Jersey Municipal Management Association receiving the Elected Official Award and the Career Development Award.
“I want to thank our previous Chair, Cindy Enrenclou, for her outstanding service. She’s smart, diligent, and cares so much about the environment,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director, New Jersey LCV Ed Fund. “I am certain that as chair, Bob will continue to bring the same passion and commitment he has demonstrated throughout his service at New Jersey LCV Ed Fund. We are looking forward to working with him to preserve our beautiful state for our children and grandchildren.”
