Kenneth R. Palmer Distinguished Service Award

COSCA is issuing its biennial call for nominations for the Kenneth R. Palmer Distinguished Service Award.  Mr. Palmer was a valued member of COSCA, active in the organization (serving as a member of the Board of Directors and as President-elect), and extremely well-respected in the state court community.  COSCA established this award after Mr. Palmer’s death with the intention of honoring his memory by recognizing a state court administrator who has followed his example of leadership and excellence. Past recipients include Rosalyn W. Frierson (2017), James D. Gingerich (2015) and Daniel Becker (2013).

Members of the Conference of State Court Administrators (COSCA) regularly make public remarks and speeches on a variety of topics relating to the administration of justice or the policy priorities of the Conference. From time to time, COSCA will issues announcements or press releases on policy matters it deems of interest to the media or the public, usually through the communications office at the National Center for State Courts.
