NACM Membership

Becoming a member of the National Association for Court Management (NACM) has great benefits, whether you are new to the profession or have been involved with the courts your entire career! Here are just a few reasons you should be a part of NACM:

1. Unparalleled educational opportunities. In addition to two conferences held each year, NACM offers webinars on trending court topics, live streaming of sessions, recordings of prior presentations, Core® curriculum, and more.

2. Networking with other court professionals. Whether it is participating in committee work, being a part of the mentor/mentee program, meeting colleagues from around the country at conferences or virtual experiences, NACM provides networking exclusively for those in the profession. NACM Members are a part of a unique community, so we have a member directory allowing members to connect with other members in similar courts or by location.

3. The opportunity to hone leadership skills. As with any association, you get out what you put into it. NACM’s success relies on many volunteers to run the organization. Through participation in NACM Committees, members are provided opportunities for professional growth while ensuring the association is meeting the needs of the court professional community.

4. Resources galore! A large part of NACM's mission is to provide education and share information with court professionals. Members receive the Court Manager, NACM’s premium electronic magazine, the Court Express, NACM’s e-newsletter, Core® curriculum and more. NACM’s resources provide the tools needed for today's court professionals.
