The New Jersey State Council Trout Unlimited

The Council is made up of leadership from 10 individual TU Chapters that are situated throughout the Garden State. In order for TU to speak as 'One Voice' in New Jersey, leaders from each Chapter meet quarterly and discuss how to best achieve Trout Unlimited's National, State, and Local mission and vision. The majority of the activity and impact on conservation efforts are made at the Chapter level. Council encourages and promotes Inter-Chapter Collaboration and Support.

State TU Councils are the key link between the National TU staff and State TU Chapters and play a critical role in advocating Trout Unlimited's mission and vision at the state level.

TU Mission

To conserve, protect and restore North America’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.

TU Vision

By the next generation, Trout Unlimited will ensure that robust populations of native and wild coldwater fish once again thrive within their North American range, so that our children can enjoy healthy fisheries in their home waters.

New Jersey State TU Council is not simply another chapter and should be regarded as a coalition, the vital thread that binds all the chapters together for mutual support and assistance. The State Council, therefore, deserves the active participation of every chapter in New Jersey. Our State TU Council is committed to bringing chapters closer together, and experience has proven that a strong council usually results in strong, effective chapters, and vice versa.

New Jersey State TU Council has a National Leadership Council Representative (NLC), a volunteer elected to be a conduit between the Council and the TU National Board and Staff. The NLC Representative brings issues and concerns from the state level to the national level and then bring decisions and initiatives from the national level back to their state council.
