The AENJ Advisory Council (AC) is comprised of New Jersey Art Educators who design and coordinate annual professional development events. The AC is comprised of representatives from each NJ region: South, Central, and North in addition to each division: Elementary, Middle, Secondary, Pre-Service, Higher Ed, Museum Ed.

Each year AC designs a variety of professional development offerings, ranging from media-specific workshops, museum visits and forums that provide art educators with opportunities to engage with new topics, techniques, and strategies that impact art teachers, their students, and school art programs.
