In The News...

Ms. Alexa Olsen, Court Operations Manager at Reno Municipal Court, recently became a Fellow of the Institute for Court Management (ICM) having successfully completed a long-term, rigorous court executive training program.   Ms. Olsen, along with 17 other court professionals from around the United States and Guam, took part in the graduation ceremony that was conducted at the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C.   

The ICM Fellows Program, which was established more than 45 years ago to improve the management of state court administration, is the only program of its kind in the United States.  It is the flagship program of the National Center for State Court’s Institute for Court Management.   The overall purpose of the program is leadership development.  The intensive four-phase educational program culminates with the presentation of a master-level research paper.  Potential fellows must clearly articulate to a panel of well-respected senior managers the findings from their research and offer thoroughly-vetted recommendations for process improvements of the judicial system.    Ms. Olsen, who holds a Master Degree in Judicial Management from the University of Nevada, presented her paper titled: “Trial Court Collaboration in a Wiki World”; which suggests the implementation a wide-area intranet allowing Nevada trial courts to easily share operational information thus facilitating the standardization of case processing. 

Since the first class of graduates in 1970, nearly 1,250 court professionals in 48 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and 12 foreign countries have become Fellows.
