Re: DEADLINE REMINDER October 13- Call for Nominations Eighth Annual Innovation in Governance Awards
The New Jersey Department Community Affairs and the League of Municipalities continue to recognize Innovation in Governance through an annual awards program. We invite you to submit nominations for the award program based on this year’s theme - Innovative Practices for Surviving in Today’s Economy

At the same time, we will share these innovative approaches with municipal leaders throughout the state at the 94th Annual League of Municipalities Conference Mayor’s Luncheon on November 18, 2009 at the Sheraton Hotel, Atlantic City.
This year’s judges include: Susan Jacobucci, Director, Division of Local Government Services; League Past Presidents Paul Matacera and Mayor Peter Cantu; and League Executive Director Bill Dressel.
