The Annual Conference for NACM will be held July 22-26, 2018, in Atlanta, so we’re asking for your ideas for plenary sessions, workshops, and speakers. If you know someone who would be perfect for our conference, send them the link for the Call for Proposals. If you want to submit a proposal yourself, follow the link, read about the conference, and complete the application by February 19.

A new NCSC report, Elements of Judicial Excellence: A Framework to Support the Professional Development of State Trial Court Judges, is now available.
