What is the League?

The Organization

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.

New Jersey Municipalities Magazine

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 each month.


In addition to the magazine, other League services include:

  • Bureau of Municipal Information
  • Contracts
  • In-Service Training
  • Instructional Seminars
  • Legislative Analysis
  • Legislative Bulletins
  • New Laws
  • Ordinances and Codes
  • Personal Consultation
  • Research
  • Research Publications

Annual Conference

The highlight of the year's activities is NJLM's 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.

Annual Report

An annual report is published each year by NJLM's Executive Director highlighting the League's efforts over the past year and the services offered.
