FROM THE PRESIDENT
By Peter Cantu, Mayor, Plainsboro

Officials from all sectors of government and throughout New Jersey will meet in Atlantic City in the next few weeks for the 90th Annual League Conference. Our New Jersey conference gives officials unprecedented opportunities to exchange information, ideas and network through education/policy sessions, exhibitors and special events. Here are some conference highlights.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Resolutions Committee will review all resolutions proposed. The approved resolutions will be submitted to the business meeting on Friday morning for final adoption. These resolutions direct League policy for the coming year.

The Mayors' Hall of Fame induction provides special recognition to mayors with many years of dedicated service to their communities. The silver level induction will honor those mayors with ten cumulative years of service. The gold level induction will honor those for serving twenty cumulative years. The induction will be held on Wednesday, during the Mayors' Box Lunch. Please refer to the list of inductees inside this issue.

As a fellow Mayor, I would like to congratulate this year's inductees and wish them well in the future. As president of the League, I urge all of my elected colleagues to join me at the conference for a week of invaluable learning. Plan to register your professional appointed staff as well. This year our League is celebrating 90 years of service to municipal government! I look forward to meeting and working with you in Atlantic City.
