Standing & Regular Committees

Standing Committees

BYLAWS: This committee is charged with the task of studying and recommending changes, additions, amendments or deletions to the Association bylaws, as circumstances warrant it. Once formulated, the recommendations of the Bylaws Committee are presented to the Board of Directors for consideration at the Board of Directors' Meetings, which are held twice annually.

TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION: This committee provides complete support to the Host Courts at the Training Workshops and Annual Convention, by coordinating the entire training program for each event. Administers all aspects of the Association's Certification Program, reviews and refines the certification criteria, approves all applications for participation in the program, and requests for certification upon completion of required curricula.

LEGISLATIVE: This committee reviews pending legislation, recommends Association positions on bills before the legislature and analyzes enacted legislation. It also recommends Association sponsorship of new legislation, when appropriate, and conducts an annual legislation seminar at our Annual Convention to present the newly enacted laws affecting the courts.

MEMBERSHIP: A major goal of the Membership Committee is to recruit new members by assembling and disseminating information concerning the vast array of benefits and opportunities available through the Association. Additionally, the committee is actively seeking to increase the number of courts who enroll 100% of their employees as members, to encourage increased support from Court Administration and reach out to our retired experts.

BUDGET AND FINANCE: This committee is chaired by the Treasurer of the Association and is involved in the financial aspect of the Association. The committee meets and conducts audits of the Business Manager's operations. Due to the high degree of technical expertise needed, membership on this committee is generally restricted to the Treasurer with support provided by selected members of the Accounting Committee, and is not open to regular members.

Regular Committees

PUBLICATIONS: This committee is responsible for compiling and distributing our procedure manuals for criminal, civil, small claims, probate, juvenile dependency and delinquency and family law. Extensive work is done by this committee to keep our manuals current with legislative changes and to present a highly professional product for use by the many factions of the legal and justice community.

INTERPRETER LIASON: This committee works primarily with the Interpreter Coordinators and the Court Interpreters to provide information on upcoming training events.
