Past Conferences

Each year since 1963, the National Association for Presiding Judges and Court Executive Officers — formerly the National Conference of Metropolitan Courts — has held an educational meeting.  The only exception was 2009, when our annual gathering was cancelled due to widespread budget and economic problems among trial courts and judicial systems caused by the Great Recession.

Educational programming touches a wide variety of state and local trial court subjects pertaining to general, limited and special jurisdictions.  Samples of the some of the educational agendas developed in recent years and the host courts are listed below.  Click on the agenda to view/download  the conference program…
