Message from the Chair

2017-2018 Chair Anne-Marie Clarke

Dear Colleagues and Friends of the Judicial Council:

I am honored to take my place as the 47th Chair of the Judicial Council of the National Bar Association.  The Judicial Council Division was created in 1971 under the auspices of the NBA Board to be an autonomous entity to serve the judicial members of our Association. As such, the Judicial Council has provided its members a forum to address the varied needs of Judges serving on administrative, municipal, State and federal courts across the US, the Caribbean, Canada and beyond. While our needs may vary, we all seek to “Let Justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an every-flowing stream.” Amos 5:24

The Judicial Council will gather this year for our Mid-Winter Meeting and Conference January 21-26, 2018 onboard the Carnival Victory, the Gertrude Rush Symposium in Chicago, IL April 19-22, 2018 and the Annual Convention in New Orleans, LA July 28-August 3, 2018. During each meeting, there will be educational programming that is beneficial and enlightening and opportunities to fellowship and socialize with fellow judges. Please come join us.

If you are currently a member, I thank you for continuing to support the National Bar and the Judicial Council. Our organization can only remain the viable entity it has been through your committed involvement. If you haven’t been a member or it’s been a while since you were a member, please join our Division and plan to attend the programs scheduled during this year.  We need your voice and we need your ideas to continue to build on what the previous 46 Chairs have created for us.

Most sincerely,

Hon. Anne-Marie Clarke
Chair, Judicial Council 2017-2018
