Become Involved Through Committee Membership

Aside from the benefits that you receive as a member of the ABA, the Judicial Division and the AJC, as an AJC member, you will have access to the Conference's many Committees which provide members a lively and open forum for analysis, debate and education. Conference Committees also allow you to discuss common and diverse interests and goals and to network with judges from around the nation.

Conference Committee members are very enthusiastic individuals committed to the cause of an efficient, independent judiciary. Many AJC members have expressed the view that Committee work has provided them with unprecedented professional and personal growth. AJC encourages its members to become involved and bring to the attention of these Committees their ideas and concerns so that the objectives and interests of all members can be heard, understood and incorporated into AJC proposals, projects and initiatives.
