Justification to Attend the 2023 NASJE Conference

We all know dollars are tight and we are required to make a case for any significant expenditure, such as attending a conference out of state. To help out, the NASJE 2023 Annual Conference Committee drafted some justification language for you. 

All the key conference details, including this justification language, are included in the conference flyer

Justification Points

  • The National Association of State Judicial Educators (NASJE) has a nearly 50-year history of providing excellent professional development to those who create and provide education to the nation’s judges and court staff.
  • The conference is a unique opportunity for judicial educators to learn how to do their jobs better and network with others in their field.
  • Education sessions are based on NASJE’s competency areas, ensuring that judicial educators at all levels of experience will benefit from the sessions.
  • A combination of NASJE member educators and paid speakers is the perfect complement of relevant topics, professionally presented.
  • Planned by professional educators, the entire event is an education in best practices, from the conference sessions to the meeting arrangements.
  • The conference fee is competitive with other national conferences, allowing more of your staff to attend, within your budget.

We look forward to seeing you in Columbus in August!
