Hot Topics for Local Officials: Environmental Sessions at the League Conference

As caretakers of the land for future generations, the environment remains an ongoing concern for New Jersey’s municipalities. With the nation’s most strict plastic bag ban signed off by Governor Murphy and mask litter cluttering our streets, along with many other issues, getting green and staying green is a challenge that League Conference sessions can help local officials tackle.

Consider the following sessions when planning your schedule for the 105th Annual Conference, November 16-20. And if you can’t make it to all the sessions during Conference Week, you will have up to a year to catch up as these sessions will be recorded and available on-demand for registrants for one year.
