In 1999, Victor Boski and his business associates set out to establish a major supplier of industrial fittings, hardware, and piping. Recognizing a need to understand the tools he sold, Victor Boski joined The Engineers Club of New Jersey (ECNJ), a trade organization for engineers, estimators, schedulers, and managers. Today, Victor Boski serves mainly as a consultant and manager of the company he helped to create 11 years ago, National Industrial Supply, LLC. However, he continues to participate in ECNJ, where he benefits from the expertise and experience of a network of engineering professionals.

Headquartered in North Branch, New Jersey, ECNJ serves the state’s growing population of technical professionals in both the commercial and industrial markets. An offshoot of The New York Engineers Club, the ECNJ originally consisted of engineers from the mechanical, electrical, mining, and design/construction industries. An early supporter of the organization was industrialist Andrew Carnegie, who donated $1.5 million to get the New York branch up and running. Today, the ECNJ operates as a networking forum, a professional development center, a platform for inter-disciplinary discussions, and a community-minded society.
Full members benefit from monthly e-mail newsletters, regular dinner meetings and presentations, annual socializing events, and charitable activities. In order to help its members find further success in the field, the ECNJ posts job listings and aids undergraduate and graduate engineering students in finding internships. The ECNJ also partners with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey and has raised enough money to fulfill the wishes of at least two Make-A-Wish participants.
