Extending Out From the Core: The Profession in Practice
February 14-16, 2016
Join NACM on the sunny Gulf Coast this February for two days of solid education focused on the NACM Core. The NACM Core frames and expresses the competencies court professionals should have in a way that inspires individual professionalism, promotes personal and organizational accountability, and reflects the high calling that is service in the judicial branch. Courts play a singular role in society, and their effective administration requires competence that is commensurate with the high standards to which those working in the judicial branch are, and must be, held.
NACM’s 2016 Midyear Conference will provide attendees with training and networking opportunities that will encourage them to consider how the competencies that mark the profession as expressed in the new NACM CORE build individual strengths, strengthen organizational capacity, and promote trust and confidence in the judicial branch.
We are pleased to have Sam Brooke, a deputy legal director of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Economic Justice Project, to kick off the conference Monday morning with a keynote on Justice for the Poor — Ensuring a Fair Judicial Process for All. Leadership development coach Linda Talley will offer a second keynote Monday morning on Perception Is All There Is: How To Use Six Powerful (and Subtle) Non-verbal Behaviors To Influence and Persuade. Our third keynote speaker will kick off the day on Tuesday. Tim Murray, director emeritus of the Pretrial Justice Institute, will speak on Pretrial Justice Reforms: A National Perspective.
In addition to NACM’s outstanding education offerings, conference attendees will enjoy an event at the Mobile Carnival Museum, where you will not only learn more about Mobile’s claim to Mardi Gras fame, but enjoy dancing and dessert as well. 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.
Register early and save! Early bird registration ends January 8. Special rates for groups of five or more are available – contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
