KACM is an organization of court clerks and court staff focused on helping all of its members understand and perform their job responsibilities within the guidelines of the Kansas State and Supreme Court regulations. However, KACM also recognizes that, as court clerks, we need to be able to network with other court clerks and gather ideas and support from all of the cities of the State. KACM also benefits you personally by creating a network of friends. These new friends have experienced your problems and can assist in solving some of these troublesome situations.
As a KACM member, you will receive quarterly newsletters that include conference information, updates from the Driver Control, legislative updates pertaining to municipal courts and minutes of the KACM business meetings along with other pertinent information. We also have a conference in the Fall of the year and provide training and the ability to network with your fellow court clerks.
KACM has focused on the position of being "court clerk" in a Kansas Municipal court; addressing the problems that are unique to our positions. The recognition of KACM as a professional association has resulted in the Supreme Court working with us to create a manual designed especially for a Municipal Court Clerk in Kansas. KACM provides the trainers to the Supreme Court for their conference in the Spring and we are excited about the information we obtain in these conferences. KACM is also recognized by the Kansas League of Municipalities. KACM hopes we can improve your life by providing you with information, education and support as you strive to survive in your position of a Municipal Court Clerk.
