President's Message


May is a time for celebrating graduations of all types: kindergarten (yes, that is a real thing!), high school, college, graduate school, and even the Institute for Court Management Fellows (ICM) program graduation. I was particularly excited to see so many NACM members in the 2016 ICM Fellows class. Congratulations to all of you – it is such a wonderful professional accomplishment!

NACM’s annual conference is another way to pursue professional development opportunities. This year’s annual conference will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, July 10 – 14, and the conference theme is Making Connections: Integrative Leadership and Court Performance

There will be a number of timely keynote addresses that will explore issues such as the right to counsel in criminal matters, engaging minority and economically disadvantaged communities, and how the Missouri judicial system is recovering from the events of 2014 in Ferguson. 

In addition to these plenary topics, there are numerous breakout sessions throughout the four-day conference, as well as opportunities to network and share challenges / solutions with your colleagues. 

You can access information about the conference educational and networking opportunities on the conference website. The early bird registration rate ends on June 3rd so don’t wait – register today!

I look forward to seeing you in Pittsburgh in July!
