History

 

The Mid-Atlantic Association for Court Management (MAACM) is a professional organization made up of individuals interested in court management. Founded in 1993 in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, the organization was created to provide effective educational programs that were only previously available at the national level. MAACM's charge was to deliver these programs cost effectively to court professionals on a regional basis. Hence, MAACM's Annual Educational Conference was born.

Holding its first conference in 1993 jointly with the National Association for Court Management (NACM) in Baltimore, MAACM has held annual conferences every October in locations convenient to its membership. These have included sites such as: Dewey Beach and Dover, Delaware; Lancaster, Split Rock Resort, Hershey, Lake Harmony, Seven Springs Mountain Resort, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Atlantic City, Cape May, Cherry Hill, and Long Branch, New Jersey; Virginia Beach and Williamsburg, Virginia; and Ocean City and Baltimore, Maryland. Because MAACM is a not-for-profit organization and has maintained its dues and conference fees at affordable levels, many court personnel can participate and take advantage of these very worthwhile educational programs. MAACM now boasts a membership of over 700 court professionals and more than 400 people attend its annual conference.
