FROM THE PRESIDENT
By Herbert Stiles, Mayor, Elmer

The 91st Annual League Conference is just around the corner, and as president I would like to provide some important reminders to municipal attendees.

Mayors should be sure to schedule time to attend the League's Annual Business meeting to be held Friday, November 17 at 8:30 a.m. in the Sheraton Pearl Ballroom. Your attendance is critically important to carrying out the business of the League. Please also make time to attend the popular Mayors Box Luncheon on Wednesday, November 15 at 12:00 noon in the Sheraton Crown Ballroom.

Local officials should make sure to visit the consulting period on Thursday at 2:00 p.m. in Hall A. Experts will provide up-to-date information on over 100 topics relevant to municipal administration. Get one-on-one consultation for new and useful information to help your municipality.

Finally, visit the exhibit floor and attend some of the many important education sessions. You may be able to find that much needed piece of equipment, product or service for your community from over 750 business vendors. Hundreds of League and affiliate group education clinics provide local officials with up-to-date information and answers to questions on key municipal topics. Get more of the latest conference details at www.njslom.org.

Again, make the most of this year's conference by finding time for these important events. I look forward to seeing you in November. See more reminders inside this issue.
