In attendance were Judge DeMarce's wife, Brenda, and Schuyler County Associate Circuit Judge, Kelly Lovekamp, who also serves as Historian of the Association.
The state wide Association provides continuing legal education at its three-day conference, with membership open to all state judges and court commissioners.
This year's conference included educational programs on Missouri law including probate, criminal and civil issues and updates. An extensive course on the synthetic drug problem was given as well. The event was attended by over 130 judges and commissioners. A joint luncheon was held with the members of the Missouri Professional Association of Court Clerks (MOPACC), who also attend training sessions during the conference.
