I'm writing this from Anaheim, California, where I'm attending the National Association for Court Management's annual conference. I'm here to do a panel on partnership -- how to build effective inter-agency collaborations. The panel is actually part of a problem-solving court track that I helped to organize. Since misery loves company, I've also hooked up Mike to do a presentation on research, Brett to do a presentation on working with the defense bar, and Adam to do a panel on failure. So far so good: it is a well-run and well-attended conference and the response to our panels has been positive.
