From the President
Mayor Art Ondish

Arthur Ondish

The 96th Annual Conference was again a great success as it provided local leaders with new ideas and information to help them do a better job of governing their communities. Our conference continues to be the largest in the nation, with the most educational sessions, exhibits, and networking opportunities for municipal attendees. Some 18,000 local officials received a full update on key issues they will face in the coming year.

During the business meeting on Thursday, November 17, I was honored to be elected President of this great organization. The League membership also elected Mayor Janice Mironov to the office of 1st vice president; Mayor Suzanne Walters to 2nd Vice President; and Mayor Gerald Tarantolo to 3rd Vice President. You can view a full list of the Executive Board on the League web site. I will rely on these new board members, and those re-elected to the board, for insight and assistance throughout the coming year. There will be full information on the new board members in upcoming issues of New Jersey Municipalities magazine.

In addition, at the business meeting, the membership passed several resolutions, which will guide League policy over the next year. See a full list of resolutions on the League web site and in the January issue of New Jersey Municipalities.

Finally, you can access the executive director's report on the state of the League through your conference program, the December issue of the magazine at www.njslom.org
THANK YOU CONFERENCE VOLUNTEERS
-Contact Bill Dressel, ext. 122 or bdressel@njslom.com

Many conference delegates wonder how the League is able to conduct the country’s largest municipal conference with a full time staff of just 18. The answer is you! In the back of the conference program, you will see a listing of mayors who served on various committees. Although the list is extensive, it cannot possibly include all the mayors who work to make our conference successful every year. Mayors play an integral role by helping to produce sessions, moderating, working on committees, and auditing important sessions. Your dedicated service enables nearly 18,000 attendees to come together for one week of invaluable learning and networking each year. Thank you for making the 96th Annual Conference a great success.

SEMINAR FOR NEWLY ELECTED AND RE-ELECTED OFFICIALS

Every year the League offers this important program in two locations throughout the state to help serve the needs of municipal officials who are new to their positions or want a timely update on issues. Each seminar includes a special luncheon open forum discussion designed to specifically update and answer questions from newly elected officials. Attend these programs and get the information and answers you need about your new responsibilities. See page one of this newsline or, the calendar on our web site for locations.
