League of Municipalities Conference Begins Today


ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – The 100th Annual New Jersey State League of Municipalities conference begins today in Atlantic City. 

The League of Municipalities is a voluntary association created to help communities do a better job of self-government by pooling information resources and brain power.  Authorized by state statue, the league was established in 1915 with more than 560 mayors and 13,000 elected and appointed officials of member municipalities entitled to all of the services and privileges of the league. 

The annual League of Municipalities conference provides opportunities to learn and ask questions at more than 100 panels, clinics, workshop and other sessions.  TAPinto CEO and Publisher Mike Shapiro will be one of the speakers at the conference, discussing “Tips on How to Keep Your Citizens Informed.”  In addition, commercial, government and associated exhibits display the latest products and services for municipal government.

Cedar Grove Mayor Joseph Chiusolo said that the League of Municipalities conference provides opportunities not only for elected officials, but also for township employees and staff such as the town clerk and members of the zoning and planning boards.  He also noted the conference trade show as a benefit of the conference.

“The trade show features everything from vehicles to pens from vendors that have New Jersey state contracts, as well as entrepreneurs who are hoping to work with municipalities and earn contracts,” Chiusolo said. 

Chiusolo feels the biggest benefit of the conference is seeing what issues are impacting municipalities and taxpayers the most and finding out how different townships are dealing with those issues. 

“I always look forward to attending to see what’s happening, especially with so many things happening in the state legistlature,” he added.  “It will be interesting to see how they will affect municipalities like ours and our taxpayers.”
