President’s Welcome to MMACJA!
My Fellow Members and Prospective of Missouri Municipal and Associate Circuit Judges Association,
I am honored and humbled to be your MMACJA President for 2019-2020. I look forward to another year of service to one of the finest association of its type in the United States. The Missouri Municipal and Associate Circuit Judges Association is a not-for-profit corporation that has been a leader in educating Missouri judges and courts for more than 50 years.
In addition to the duties prescribed to the President, I will continue to work with the Board in furtherance of the Association’s commitment to education by striving to follow the Association’s objectives:
- To encourage the adoption of uniform practices and procedures in the municipal and associate circuit courts;
- To maintain the highest possible judicial standards in said courts;
- To assist the judicial, administrative and legislative bodies of the municipal and state governments by making available to them information obtained from the experience and studies of the members of this Association; and
- To keep its membership informed on all subject matters of importance to municipal and associate circuit courts, including the substantive and procedural law pertaining to said courts.
MMACJA provides many educational opportunities to its members. Be sure to mark your calendars for the Regional Seminar on November 1, 2019 at 5 locations including Kansas City, Columbia, St. Louis, Springfield, and Sikeston. Regional Seminars are free to MMACJA members. Our Annual conference will be May 20, 2020 through May 22, 2020 at the Lodge of the Four Seasons at Lake Ozark, Missouri.
I look forward to serving you over the next year.
MMACJA 2019-2020 President, Karen L. Krauser, Associate Circuit Judge
