Nebraska Trial Judges’ Associations Elect New Presidents
Nebraska’s trial judges’ associations installed new presidents during their annual meetings in La Vista on October 18, 2018.
The associations and their newly appointed presidents are:
• Nebraska District Judges’ Association – Judge John A. Colborn, Lincoln
• Nebraska County Judges’ Association – Judge Marcela A. Keim, Omaha; and
• Nebraska Separate Juvenile Judges Association – Judge Christopher E. Kelly, Omaha.
Each will serve until October 2019.
Judges’ associations allow courts to network, problem solve and share innovations across the state. Their goal is to educate one another on national, state and local issues; and discuss ways to more efficiently function within the Judicial Branch of government. Judge association presidents work closely with the Chief Justice of the Nebraska Supreme Court and with the Office of the State Court Administrator.
Association presidents have the power to appoint specialized committees and operate with their elected executive committees.
