Re: Celebrating the History of the League
As 2015 marks the 100th Anniversary of the League of Municipalities, we look forward to commemorating this important milestone by publishing highlights of the League’s history in the monthly magazine New Jersey Municipalities and on the League website njslom.org.
Today we have posted on the anniversary web page http://www.njslom.org/100years/ an expanded narrative history of the League. This narrative explains how the League came into being, structural changes over the years, historic policy highlights, the evolution of League services and much more.
Understanding the history of the League can help in understanding the current state of the League and local government in general. We hope you enjoy reading these historical highlights released over the course of this anniversary year.
After learning about the history of the League, consider attending the New Jersey State League of Municipalities 100th Anniversary & William G. Dressel, Jr. Retirement Banquet May 7, 2015 at the Hilton East Brunswick. Get full details and order tickets on line athttp://njslom.org/100banquet
