National Agenda Toolkit


The National Agenda Toolkit was developed to assist state and regional court management associations in bringing the NACM’s National Agenda to their local level. The NACM National Agenda is a “touchstone” for NACM’s leadership in its education, advocacy, and other work in support of court professionals within the expanding role of the field of court administration. A similar experience can be achieved locally. At a minimum, the exercise of discussing and developing a “State Agenda” or an “Association Agenda” is a powerful adjunct to the strategic planning process and helps put an organization’s effort in to actionable context.

In addition to background materials on the National Agenda, the Governance Committee has developed a readiness assessment to gauge whether an organization is ready for an agenda along with a draft presentation for local organizations to use to get their discussion started.

As part of its commitment to this process, NACM will provide guidance and technical assistance. For assistance please contact Paul DeLosh or TJ BeMent.
