The Cumberland Empowerment Zone Corporation (CEZC) is administered by a 13-member Board of Directors, with membership designed to ensure diverse representation. Six members of the Board of Directors are automatically appointed based upon their positions – four mayors of the Empowerment Zone municipalities and two members of the Cumberland County Board of Chosen Freeholders. The remaining seven members are selected by a nominating committee as representatives of Empowerment Zone businesses, education providers, economic development entities and residents.
Board meetings are held monthly. To ensure public transparency and participation, meetings are advertised and conducted in compliance with the Open Public Meetings Act.
