Newly Elected Officials Seminars Encourage Education and Networking
Newly elected officials attended programs held by the New
Jersey State League of Municipalities (NJLM) on January 10, 2015 at the
Sheraton Hotel in Eatontown and February 7, 2015 at the Marriott
Renaissance Hotel in Rutherford on the topic of “Orientation for Newly
Elected, Re-Elected, and Experienced officials.” These programs,
attended by over 200 Municipal Officials, were moderated by Mayor
Thomas Kelaher; Toms River Township, and Mayor James Cassella; East
Rutherford Borough; NJLM Third Vice President. Featured speakers
included the NJLM and various State and Local Officials.
Attendees learned about NJLM services available to local
government officials; details on the municipal budget process and best
practices; the local government purchasing procedures; the importance
of leadership and working with professional staff; obligations under
the Open Public Records Act and Open Public Meetings Act; government
ethics; and labor contracts. Attendees also had several opportunities
throughout the day network with each other.
