The NJLCA is comprised of four types of members: contractors, associates, affiliates and students. Regardless of which type of member you are, you have full access to this website and receive preferred pricing to all of our events.  In addition, once you become a member, all of your employees will become members as well and will receive the same benefits and as you.  As a matter of fact, we strongly encourage you to include your employees in all of our events, including monthly membership meetings, educational classes and also our annual trade show, Landscape New Jersey.
