Announcing the participants of the completed 2023 ICJE “Train the Trainer” workshop – who are ready to lead a class!
By Lynne Moore Nelson, Esq., ICJE Executive Director
ICJE used to offer this workshop in collaboration with the National Judicial College. The last time the class was offered was in 2019 – so ICJE was thrilled when its Board of Directors confirmed its desire to bring the class back and we are grateful to UGA’s School of Law Dean Peter “Bo” Rutledge for his generous financial support that allowed ICJE to partner with David Key of the Carl Vinson Institute of Government to offer this year’s program.
ICJE is pleased to inform you that we had 23 learners complete the “2023 Train the Trainer” workshop facilitated by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government. The cohort attended the 2-day course learning how to be an effective instructor for ICJE and on the second day, they all presented a 10-15 minute presentation for feedback from their peers. Many learners presented topics that could be presented at an upcoming judicial training – topics varied on professionalism, court procedures specific to their class of court, judicial wellness, managing court staff, etc.
The 23 instructors did an excellent job and each received an ICJE lapel pin designating them as an ICJE instructor – ready to be called into service!
Therefore, please see a listing of the newly trained instructors who are prepared to lead one of your training classes – also note that it was a program participation commitment that the instructors lead an ICJE training within 18 months (Sept. 2024) of completing this workshop since your Council sponsored the lodging/catering fees for the 23 participants. I am optimistic that the Board will want to continue this program next year.
