Arizona Court Manager (ACM) Background:

 

The Arizona Court Manager (ACM) program has its roots in the 2005 formation of the Arizona Court Leadership Institute (CLIA).  Incorporating Arizona-specific training into the existing National Center for State Courts Institute for Court Management (ICM) certification program set the stage for a truly “Arizona certified” court manager.  In 2008 a standard ICM curriculum was created in conjunction with six other states and the National Center for State Courts. 

Since 2010, 169 participants have graduated from the ACM program.
