Message From the League President

Mayor William Pikolycky (Borough of Woodbine)

As Mayors, we’ve all had to dig deep over the past two years and come up with innovative ways to help our communities. Throughout that time, the League’s educational events and materials have been useful tools. As the 107th Annual League Conference draws closer, your League staff is working diligently on issues such as transportation and parking, hotel accommodations, exhibit booth space, education sessions, and major NJLM events. Our goal is to create the familiar blend of education, exhibits, and networking in a safe and welcoming environment that lives up to this year’s theme: Building for Tomorrow.

You can begin your Conference planning process this month. Details on the event will be shared in the Conference Planning going to municipal clerks this week as well as from the Preview available in the June issue of NJ Municipalities magazine and on the League Conference website. The website also has additional important information about the conference hotel reservation system and schedule of events. 

Select your Conference Housing starting June 1 via the League website. Staying for the whole event maximizes your opportunities to learn about the latest tools to Build For Tomorrow. The League strives to make it possible for your staff to attend and get the most out of the Annual Conference.  

As of August 1, municipal officials will be able to register for the conference online at our website. Be sure to take advantage of this easy way to register early for the 107th Annual League Conference. Full conference 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 and the official Conference hotels.

The League is working on the details of traditional events, including the Mayors’ Briefing Lunch, the Women In Municipal Government Awards and Networking Event and the League Luncheon. This is also your opportunity to have your voice heard as the League’s plans for the coming year are set. Please plan on attending the League Resolution Committee meeting on Nov. 15 and the League Business meeting on Nov. 17.  As these networking opportunities are finalized, we will share the information.

 The Conference is less than six months away. Start planning now and contact the League office if you need assistance. I look forward to meeting and working with you at the 107th Annual Conference November 15-17 in Atlantic City.
