The Educational Services Commission of New Jersey (ESCNJ), the state’s largest educational services commission, offers more than a high-quality special education to students throughout Central Jersey.
The recently-opened Professional Conference Center, located at ESCNJ’s central campus on Stelton Road in Piscataway, provides a meeting space with cutting-edge technology. The more than 4,000-square-feet of meeting space can accommodate both small and medium events with screens, interactive podiums, lighting, professional sound and all the other features of a modern, professional facility.
“We are eager to show businesses and organizations what the Professional Conference Center has to offer,” said Superintendent of Schools Mark Finkelstein. “It was never the plan for the center just to be used for the educational services sector. It is here to serve Middlesex County’s business community, from an ideally-centralized location.”
Finkelstein envisions the conference will be regularly used for a combination of training and meetings for educators, and the public and private sectors, as the world moves beyond the pandemic’s limitations.
The facility has the ability to divide the space into two large breakout rooms, features a state-of-the-art sound system and large LED walls for high-resolution presentations. Ample free parking and a sleek, clean appearance make the center appropriate for any type of event.
The center seats up to 300 attendees. ESCNJ offers staffing services for an additional fee, including IT, catering and custodial.
Finkelstein said there is discounted pricing for MCRCC members, an exclusive benefit. For more information and to book an on-site or virtual tour, contact Assistant Superintendent Gary Molenaar at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 732-777-9848 Ext. 5010.
ESCNJ is also looking forward to the 17,000-square-foot expansion of its Aquatics and Fitness Center on Cheesequake Road in Sayreville, expected to be completed this fall. The expansion will include all new equipment and a robust schedule of classes for members. Memberships are open to all county residents.
Finkelstein added that ESCNJ is also expanding its professional consultation services to school districts, as well as for-profit and non-profit entities. The conference center will be an important part tool in this expansion, the ideal location for retreats and other professional development.
