Committed to Excellence: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
July 12-16, 2015 Louisville, Kentucky

As NACM celebrates its 30th year the annual conference* will focus on the new NACM Core, which has replaced the original NACM Core Competencies, and will highlight how the Core can assist the judges and court administrators of NACM and the National Conference of Metropolitan Courts (NCMC) in the administration of justice. Themes will include:

  • The Court Manager/Judicial Leader, with a focus on the individual and his or her career as a court professional or administrative judge,
  • The High-Performing Court, with a focus on the court as an organization, as the third branch of government, and as an employer,
  • The Profession of Court Management, where the focus will shift to the profession of court management and how it relates to judicial administration.

NACM 2015 Annual Keynote SpeakerKeynote speakers will be “The Ethics Guy” Bruce Weinstein, court administration icon Ernest Friesen, and Kimberly Papillon.

NACM will also partner with the Institute for Court Management (ICM) to offer Purposes & Responsibilities of Courts, a new hybrid class that combines online and in-person segments. Participants will register for the class by May 1, take part in webinars and online assignments for six weeks, then finish with face-to-face instruction in a full-day, live event on Sunday of the Annual Conference (July 12). The course counts toward a Certified Court Manager certificate, and costs only $100 for NACM Annual Conference attendees.

In addition, conference attendees will enjoy great networking opportunities, including an event at the famed Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. Shared Interest Groups, an extensive exhibit show, and a community service project to benefit the local community are a few of the other events being planned for you.
