MUNICIPAL POLICY MAKERS SET TO ATTEND LEAGUE ANNUAL CONERENCE NEXT WEEK
Over 17,000 interested citizens and public servants are
expected to gather in Atlantic City, from Tuesday, November 18 through
Thursday, November 20, 2014, to participate in the 99th Annual
Conference of the New Jersey State League of Municipalities. This is,
again, expected to be the Nation’s largest gathering of municipal
Over 100 informative sessions are scheduled. Highlights
include the League’s popular delegate luncheon with a keynote address
from Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno on Thursday afternoon.
Wednesday’s event schedule includes the Mayors’ Luncheon featuring
State Community Affairs Commissioner Richard Constable, Commissioner
Bob Martin of the Department of Environmental Protection,
Transportation Commissioner Jamie Fox, and Board of Public Utilities
Commissioner Joseph Fiordaliso.
Key educational seminars will cover economic development
and recovery, ethics, shared services, the Federal Affordable Care Act,
resiliency, social media and more sessions important to municipal
government. New Jersey’s municipal officials also use this conference
to review nearly 800 companies, which provide municipal goods and
services. This gives local officials the opportunity to shop for the
best bargains, saving property taxpayers’ money in the process.
“This is not only America’s largest municipal conference;
it is also the most instructive and the most valuable. New Jersey
local officials come to Atlantic City for three full days of learning
that is not available anywhere else at any other time” said League
President Suzanne M. Walters, Mayor of Stone Harbor.
