President's Message


It was great to connect with so many of our members, partners, and friends in Pittsburgh last month for our annual conference. We had a terrific turnout, with more than 600 attendees, speakers, and exhibitors in attendance, and Pittsburgh was a wonderful host city to our gathering.  Videos from conference plenary and breakout sessions have already been posted to our website, and session summaries will both be featured and expanded upon in upcoming issues of NACM’s publication, Court Manager

With a solid National Agenda, an updated Strategic Plan, strong committee leadership, and robust committee participation, NACM is well positioned to continue to be a trusted resource for court professionals in their efforts to advance the administration of justice and advocate for courts and our profession. Of course, the NACM Core ( will continue to serve as an important point of reference in our conference planning and other activities. The Core is a great resource for our members, their courts, and their state associations, and we encourage you to use it to advance your professional development and improve the administration of justice. 

Many opportunities exist for our members and others to deepen their involvement with NACM. Visit NACM’s website often to make sure you are up to date on all that is happening in your association.   

I am humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve as NACM’s president this year, and I look forward to working with our capable and enthusiastic board of directors to “strengthen court professionals.”
