The NASJE Business meeting was held during lunch on Tuesday, August 5. President Jill Goski presided over the business meeting and presented Dr. Patricia H. Murrell with the Karen Thorson Award. Attendees heard reports from the Chairs of NASJE committees, approved proposed changes to NASJE Constitution and Bylaws, and elected members to open NASJE Board seats.
Dr. Maureen Conner just completed her portion of the morning plenary. During the session, Dr. Conner led participants to think about and discuss their own professional guiding philosophy, mission, values, voice, thinking, acting, competence, and ability to be forward-looking, as well as how these factors impact each participant’s organization and the profession of judicial education as a whole. Participants were divided into groups, and each group reported back on one of the above listed factors. The thoughts that the different groups shared will be collected and presented in a future article for the NASJE News.
