FROM THE PRESIDENT
By David DelVecchio, Mayor, Lambertville

The 92nd Annual League Conference is just around the corner and your League staff has already been working diligently on issues such as transportation and parking, hotel accommodations, selling exhibit booth space, education sessions, and major luncheon events. Local officials can begin the conference planning process with available details in the June issue of New Jersey Municipalities magazine and the League web site at www.njslom.org. Here is some important information in the conference registration procedure and schedule of events.

Housing forms will be mailed to all Municipal Clerks on June 1 and will also be posted on the League web page.

As of August 1, municipal officials will be able to register for the conference online at our web site. Be sure to take advantage of this easy way to register for the 92nd Annual League Conference. Full registration information will be sent to all Municipal Clerks during the first week of August. Academy Bus chartered shuttle service will provide transportation to and from the Atlantic City Convention Center. The hugely popular Mayors and League Luncheons will feature key speakers from all levels of government. Get your tickets early; these events sell out quickly.

The conference is less than six months away. Start planning now and contact the League office for assistance. I look forward to meeting and working with you at the 92nd Annual Conference November 13-16 in Atlantic City.
