Re: Important Conference Sessions Possible Itinerary for First Time Conference Attendees

Dear Mayor:

We know that a number of new local officials were elected on Tuesday. Some of them may want to attend the League’s Conference to help to prepare them for taking office in January. Others were elected in the May non-partisan elections. And, due to Sandy’s forced cancellation of last year’s Conference, many who were elected in 2012 will be joining us for the first time in just 11 days. First time attendees might want to consider the sessions listed in this letter.
