The purpose of the MEL's Accreditation program is to assure that risk managers serving local government meet the highest standards.  Professionals who successfully complete the program may use the designation "MEL Accredited Risk Management Consultant." 

The MEL is a unique program because it is owned by its members that comprise almost 65% of municipalities and local authorities in New Jersey.  The risk managers continue to play an important part in the $3 billion in taxpayer savings achieved by the MEL since the program began in 1987.
