Fellow Court Leaders of Georgia,
For nearly 20 years, the Georgia Council of Court Administrators (GCCA) has spearheaded the charge to improve the operation of the courts in Georgia through the education, training and development of court professionals statewide. From the beginning of our organization until now, GCCA has prepared hundreds of leaders to assist jurists in meeting the ever-changing dynamics of our courts with an eye toward improving the administration of justice. For these reasons and so many more, I am honored to serve as the 2016 - 2017 President of GCCA.
My goals as President are anchored in the philosophy set forth by our mission and vision. During my term, I will focus on 1) continuing to expand the educational programs that we offer through our partnerships with MSU, and ICM by conducting regional meetings and training; 2) celebrating GCCA’s accomplishments and servant leaders over the last 20 years; 3) instituting a more robust onboarding process for new members, including those engaged in board service; 4)providing conference educational programs that focus on improving public trust and confidence in courts; and finally, 5) improving membership engagement through enhanced committee service.
Your involvement this year is imperative! I hope that you will consider joining a committee, participating in a committee conference call, becoming a mentor, enrolling in one of our certification programs, or attending our annual conferences. Thank you for your continued investment in GCCA and what you do for our courts each day!
Yours in service,
Yolanda L. Lewis
