President’s Message


Hon. Morris Silberman, President


Dear Colleagues,

I am honored to be serving as President of the Council of Chief Judges of the State Courts of Appeal for the 2021-22 year. It is truly a privilege to do so. The educational and social programs at our annual conference are only surpassed by the camaraderie that we share. That camaraderie is strengthened whenever we meet, whether in person or virtually. In addition to our Boston conference, we have gotten together through committee meetings and Chiefs’ Chats, by telephone and via Zoom, in groups and one on one. We have developed friendships through the organization while having multiple opportunities to learn from one another, to share ideas, and to simply chat about the challenges that we face as court leaders. Thank you all for being a part of this great group and for allowing me to represent and lead the Council.
