In every issue of Court Review, some new members of the American Judges Association are introduced to the AJA through this column. Others turn here for an update. As the AJA’s new president, my first column is a good time to look both backwards at recent activities and forward at the next year’s work.
The AJA today has more than 2,000 members, including judges at all levels of the judiciary—-trial and appellate judges, general-jurisdiction and limited-jurisdiction trial judges, and judges in both the United States and Canada. In fact, we have 150 Canadian members, something that greatly enriches the interchange at our annual educational conferences.
