What Is The League?
Annual Report of the Executive Director
The New Jersey State League of Municipalities is a voluntary
association created to help communities do a better job of self-government
through pooling information resources and brain power. It is authorized
by State Statute and since, 1915, has been serving local officials
throughout the Garden State. All 565 municipalities are members
of the League. Over 560 mayors and 13,000 elected and appointed
officials of member municipalities are entitled to all of the
services and privileges of the League.
The League publishes a magazine titled New Jersey Municipalities which reports up-to-the-minute
information on municipal administration and procedures by practical
examples, news notes and new laws. It is one of the reading "musts" for municipal officials and is sent to more than 8,500 readers
In addition to the magazine, other League services include: Bureau
of Municipal Information; Ordinances and Codes; Research; Legislative
Analysis; Legislative Bulletins; New Laws; Contracts, In-Service
Training; Personal Consultation; Instructional Seminars; and Research
The highlight of the year's activities is the Annual Conference,
held each November in Atlantic City. The Conference is an invaluable
learning experience which yields benefits throughout the year.
Delegates have the opportunity to learn and ask questions at more
than 100 panels, clinics, workshops, and other sessions conducted
by the League and the 21 associations of technical and professional
employees allied with it. Commercial, government and association
exhibits display the latest products and services for municipal
government. At the 2017 Conference, more than 16,000 delegates,
participants and guests attended, representing the largest municipal
gathering in the country.
