FROM THE PRESIDENT
By Peter Cantu, Mayor, Plainsboro

The 89th 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 local governance. Our conference continues to be the largest in the nation, with the most educational sessions, exhibits and networking opportunities for municipal attendees. Nearly 22,000 local officials received a full update on key issues they will face in the coming year.

During the business meeting on Friday November 19, 2004, the League membership elected Mayor Gene Feyl of Denville Township to the office of 3rd vice president. You can view a full list of the Executive Board below. 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.

Also, 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 and at www.njslom.org. You will see that your League is an organization in excellent condition.

THANK YOU CONFERENCE VOLUNTEERS

Many conference delegates wonder how the League is able to conduct the country’s largest municipal conference with a full time staff of just 17. 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 22,000 attendees to come together for one week of invaluable learning and networking each year. Thank you for making the 89th Annual Conference a great success.
