Re: FINAL CALL for Submissions Thirteenth Annual Innovation in Governance Awards
NOTE REVISED PROGRAM
This is a FINAL CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS. The deadline is October 1.
The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs and the New Jersey League of Municipalities continue to recognize Innovation in Governance through an annual recognition program.
This year, the Innovation in Governance Awards include any innovation undertaken by New Jersey municipal government in the past 24 months. We invite you to submit any recent innovative municipal initiatives for recognition. Any innovation in any department or program can be submitted for recognition.
This program was established to highlight exemplary local government programs that provide innovative and practical approaches to solving municipal problems and concerns. At the same time, we will share these innovative approaches with municipal leaders throughout the state at the 99th Annual League of Municipalities Conference Mayor’s Luncheon on November 19, 2014 at the Sheraton Hotel, Atlantic City.
Applications can be downloaded from the New Jersey League of Municipalities’ and the Department of Community Affairs’ websites, at http://www.njslom.org/letters/2014-0509-Innov-Gov-Awards.html and www.nj.gov/dca respectively. Since the nomination deadline is October 1, 2014, we encourage you to forward this information to all the appropriate people in your municipality today so they may meet this deadline.
If you have any questions on the Innovation in Governance awards, please contact Michael Darcy at the League of Municipalities 609-695-3481 ext. 116 or MDarcy@njslom.org
Very truly yours,
