Verona Municipal Alliance Committee (VMAC)

VMAClogo2013.jpg The Verona Municipal Alliance Committee (VMAC) provides educational programming and prevention outreach to the citizens of Verona. Its funding comes from a grant through the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse with matching funds from the Township of Verona. VMAC was authorized by the Township of Verona in 1989 to promote the prevention efforts of the State of NJ at the community level.

The Verona Municipal Alliance Committee meets one night each month during the school year - from September through May. Meetings will resume in the Fall of 2016

VMAC’s Mission is to provide information on alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse prevention, as well as healthy lifestyle choices to all members of the Verona community. The Committee welcomes suggestions and requests from individuals and partnerships with other civic organizations that share our mission. The Committee will review any program funding requests that fall within our grant requirements.

Together we can make a difference in the safety and health of our community.
