Message From the League President

Colleen Mahr


Colleen Mahr (Mayor, Borough of Fanwood)


  The Annual League Conference offers you an excellent value in keeping your staff as well as your elected officials well informed.  This year the League is offering many sessions of interest to your elected officials, including those on the topics of Ethics, Budgeting, Open Public Meetings, and Public Procurement.  Elected officials who participate in the Local Government Leadership Program will be able to receive points for attending these classes. Course listings and CEU’s will be available in September on the Conference page.  For more information on the Local Government Leadership program, please visit the Local Government Leadership webpage.

 Also please remember to register your staff in August to take advantage of the pre-registration rate of $55 for members and $105 for non-members. Pre-registration ends October 1. After that, the registration rate rises to $65 on-site for members and $125 for non-members, so be sure to get everyone registered as early as possible.    

  When you consider all of the valuable certification credits and information available for just $55 (pre-registration rate), it is clear that this is the best, most cost-effective method for you to keep your staff trained. In addition, please take a moment to review the lower hotel rates. The combination of low registration fees and low housing rates make the decision to send your staff and elected officials easy!
