Thank You For Attenting the 105th Annual Conference

Dear Elected and Appointed Officials:

We would like to take a moment to thank you for attending the League’s 105th Annual Conference, presented virtually in 2020. When the ball dropped last New Year’s Eve, little did we know what lay ahead in 2020, and now as we approach 2021, we have some reasons for optimism that better days do indeed lay ahead.

2020 challenged all of you in ways you likely could not have envisioned when you made the decision to enter public service. Too many of our fellow New Jerseyans have fallen victim to COVID, have lost their jobs, or are simply struggling to make ends meet. And too many of our employers and businesses fear that their bottom line will force hard choices.

Thus, we hope that the NJLM Virtual Conference allowed you to look back and forward on the challenges of the day, be it the COVID-19 pandemic, social and restorative justice, or how to balance the competing interests in preparing for your 2021 budget. While we hope to be back in-person in Atlantic City in 2021, the virtual conference offers a unique benefit. The content of the approximately 80 programs and 145 virtual exhibitor booths will be available on-demand starting on Monday, November 30 through October 31, 2021.

Anyone who is registered can simply log in to the Conference website to view any of the programs or visit any of the exhibitor booths. And for those who did not attend, it’s not too late. We will continue to accept registrations for access to the Conference site. Those who register now will not be able to apply for CEUs but will have full access to all programs and exhibit booths. And please continue to visit the exhibitors who chose to support the 105th Annual Conference by stopping by their booths. You can contact exhibitors directly with any questions or comments by simply using the “Request Information” button on each booth. This will generate an automatic email to the exhibitor and they will contact you with a reply.

Speaking of CEUs, starting Monday, November 30 attendees will be able to log into the League Conference Tracking System and print out their CEUs.

For those who participated in the 105th Annual Conference, thank you again for your support. For those who were unable to make it, you may want to take advantage of the on-demand content, materials which would be particularly beneficial to newly elected officials.

Congratulations to our new League officers. Joining Mayor Kovach as League President will be Bill Chegwidden, First Vice President, Mayor of Wharton; Second Vice President Ray Heck, Mayor of Millstone; and Third Vice President Bill Pikolycky of Woodbine. Our new Executive Board members will be sworn in at our December Board meeting.

And to you all, we wish you the very best for Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving, holiday season, and for better times in 2021.

Very truly yours,

Janice Kovach, NJLM President
 Mayor, Clinton 

Mike Cerra
NJLM Executive Director
