Our Committees

The heart of Monmouth-Ocean Development Council’s work comes from the ideation, dedication, and camaraderie at the committee level.

With 11 committees, and 2 social/fundraising committees we have something for everyone to be apart of! MODC is different as it allows non-members to attend most committee meetings.

MODC is a dynamic organization whose members are business leaders, government officials and key community liaisons from our non-profit community. As a member of MODC for over 20 years, I’ve watched it grow and attract great new members who’s focus is to make the Jersey Shore a better place to work and live. The educational seminars are also a great resource to help with today’s economic challenges. Come out to an event and see for yourself!
