President's Message


NACM has a lot of work to do, so as we settle back into work after the Labor Day barbeques, I thought it might be helpful to outline some of our most recent NACM projects. 

The Membership Committee created a Graduate Judicial Administration Studies Scholarship and applications are due no later than September 30. The committee has also recently received approval to hold the first-ever NACM Membership Appreciation Week, which will be held October 12–16, 2015. Watch for more information about that in upcoming weeks.

Meanwhile, the Communications Committee is hard at work on the development of a new guide for 2016. That guide will focus on the development of user-friendly courts.  Renee Kimball has graciously agreed to spearhead the project. If you are interested in assisting with the guide, please email Renee at

Many of you attended the Adult Guardianship webinar that was held on September 2. The webinar was offered as a companion to NACM’s Adult Guardianship Guide, which was published last year.  The webinar was a great success, with 245 attendees. If you missed the webinar, you can access the recording here

These are just a few of NACM’s current projects.  Thank you to all of the Board members and membership volunteers who are working hard on behalf of NACM!
