Message From the League President

James J. Perry Sr. (Hardwick Township)

The Annual League Conference offers you an excellent value in keeping your staff as well as your elected officials well informed. This year the League is offering many sessions of interest to your elected officials, including those on the topics of Ethics, Budgeting, Open Public Meetings, and Public Procurement. 

Elected officials who participate in the Local Government Leadership Program can receive points for attending these classes. Course listings and CEUs will be this fall on the Conference page. For more information on the Local Government Leadership program, please visit the Local Government Leadership webpage.

 Also, please remember to register your staff in August to take advantage of the pre-registration rate of $55 for members, August 1 through October 1.  Then from October 2 through October 22, you are still able to pre-register online at the rate of $65 for members/delegates. Pre-registration is online only for members/delegate, NJLM no longer uses paper registration for members/delegate . For-Profit-Organizations (Non-Government) go to to download a paper registration to register August 1- October 1 $105, October 2 through October 22 $125, online registration is not available to For-Profit-Organizations (Non-Government).     

When you consider all of the valuable certification credits and information available for just $55 (pre-registration rate), it is clear that this is the best, most cost-effective method for you to keep your staff trained. In addition, please take a moment to review the lower hotel rates. The combination of low registration fees and low housing rates make the Annual Conference a valuable option to educate your Elected Officials.
