Dear Leadership Institute Program Participants;

Due to the issues with the existing registration system for the Leadership Institute Programs, changes are being implemented:


Beginning with the ACE High Performance Court Framework class in July, registration will take place through a link posted to the description page (for each class).  As a reminder, class registrations are not open until 60 days prior to the start of class.  This process will be no different, so each link will not be posted until that time. 

Registration for both of the upcoming ACS classes in May is currently open.  Registration requests will need to continue being emailed to the following LI team staff:

Diane Herst - 


Sarah Kennedy –


Please send your requests to both Diane and Sarah to ensure your registration is received. 


All ACS webinar registrations will continue to be done through WebEx after an invitation email from Tony Cornay ( is sent to all eligible participants.

Thank you for your patience during this process.

The Leadership Institute Team – Sarah, Diane and Tony


Program Requisite (ACM and ACE Participants please read) :

ACM and ACE participants are required to complete a minimum of one class each 12 months following admittance into the ACM/ACE program in order to remain active participants in the program.  Inactive participants will be removed from the program 12 months following notification of inactivity.   

At this time there is no cost to attend these classes for Arizona certification. Classes are held at the Judicial Education Center in Phoenix and travel costs are the responsibility of the participant or their court.

The National Center for State Courts (NCSC) is increasing the national certification fee to $100 per class beginning July 1, 2018. (applies to ACM and ACE only)

Arizona Court Supervisor (ACS) Face-to-Face classes DO NOT require a fee.
