The New Jersey State League of Municipalities has canceled its annual convention due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy as well as the storm predicted to hit the state later this week.
The League does not expect to reschedule the event.
"Earlier today the League Executive Board met via conference call and announced the cancellation of the League’s 97th Annual Conference due the cumulative impacts of Hurricane Sandy, the forecasted noreaster and the ensuing public safety and health concerns in communities across the State," said a letter sent to league members by President Arthur Ondish and Executive Director Bill Dressel.
"The League Board made this decision after extensive discussions and consultations with the Christie Administration, Legislators, and representatives of the Atlantic City Convention Center and the representatives of the city’s hospitality industry. This decision reflects the need for local elected and appointed officials to remain in their communities to continue their recovery and restoration efforts."
The league will provide further information regarding room cancellations and refunds.
The event, scheduled for Nov. 13-15, would have been the 97th in the league's history.
