Laurie Ehlbeck, an experienced government relations representative and former New Jersey Deputy Attorney General, was named the New Jersey state director for the National Federation of Independent Business in April 2006.

As director of NFIB, the state's largest small-business advocacy organization, Ehlbeck will represent the interests of NFIB's 9,300 members in the Legislature as well as before state regulatory agencies.

"Laurie brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to this position that will be a great benefit to NFIB's small-business members in New Jersey," said Tim Goodrich, regional public policy director for NFIB.

Ehlbeck most recently was the director of government affairs for the New Jersey Food Council where she represented food chains, convenience stores, independent grocers and others in the food industry before the Legislature. Prior to the Food Council, Ehlbeck was a Deputy Attorney General where she served as Legislative Counsel identifying legal and constitutional issues, and was instrumental in drafting New Jersey Cultural Trust Fund legislation.
