Archer Partner Lori Grifa has been selected as a member of New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy’s Restart and Advisory Council. Lori will serve as a member of the Council’s Facilities and Construction Subcommittee.
The Governor’s Restart and Recovery Advisory Council brings together leaders from various industry groups and community organizations throughout New Jersey to advise state leadership on economic matters impacted by COVID-19, and to help New Jersey move forward with reopening amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The council will focus its efforts on tactics and will break into nine subcommittees, one each for Facilities and Construction, Government, Health Care, Main Street, Manufacturing and Supply Chain, Professional Services, Social Services and Faith, Tourism and Entertainment, and Transportation and Infrastructure.
The council will provide a framework for coping with the State’s new, long-term economic realities.
