Warmest Greetings colleagues and Court Review readers!

It is my honor to serve as president of the American Judges Association and to infuse it with my signature energy and look forward to an eventful year. We were certainly off to an ideal start, with Kaua’i, Hawaii serving as the venue for our 2018 Annual Educational Conference. I am sure you all enjoyed the action-packed schedule of events, magnificent scenery, and the spirit of Aloha that Hawai’i and her people extended to us during our stay. We will aspire to expand the AJA fellowship and to provide relevant learning opportunities for our members throughout the year.

Someone once advised that the difference between a good speaker and a poor speaker is a comfortable nap. Well, we left no chance for a nap in Kaua’i! The annual conference featured outstanding speakers who delivered a world-class event reflective of AJA’s high standards of excellence and commitment to judicial education.
