Reach the Unique Municipal Marketplace
The official magazine of the New Jersey State League of Municipalities (NJLM), NJ Municipalities is read by local government officials and decision makers in all areas of municipal government. NJLM is a century old and trusted organization, and its municipal readership relies on NJ Municipalities magazine for news, new initiatives and information on local government in New Jersey. 92% of NJ Municipalities' readers are currently involved in local government, allowing ads to reach a unique niche public sector audience.
Many of the magazine's current advertisers have found success establishing brand awareness and a lasting presence through advertising. With more than 6,355 readers, over 70% of subscribers have advertised for 10 years or longer. Due to the content of articles, issues experience a high pass-along readership, as they are often distributed among staff throughout the different municipal departments.
Recognized for its quality of content and display, NJ Municipalities is the recipient of numerous awards, including both the APEX Award for Publication Excellence and the MarCom Gold Award for Honoring Excellence in Marketing and Communications (click here read a notice about our most recent award).
The magazine is available in both print and digital formats by subscription.

"Advertising in NJ Municipalities Magazine provides PNC Bank the opportunity to support our Municipal Partners and to showcase our brand. The magazine is an informative publication that keeps us in touch with the issues facing Municipal Government.

"AccuScan has advertised in NJLM’s publication for several years. We believe this keeps us in front of our target audience. In every edition they see our name and image. We track all leads and over 91% of all municipal work is directly tied to our advertising presence. It could be a phone call, email or someone speaking to us at the NJLM Annual Conference telling us they saw our advertisement in the journal and planned on seeing us.
We will continue to use this valuable asset in serving our NJ customers."
Arthur Staerk, AccuScan Account Executive
