On May 5, 2017, Petra H. Mandigo Hulm, Kelly Hutton, and Rebecca Absey became Fellows of the Institute for Court Management (ICM).
Mandigo Hulm is the Chief Deputy Clerk of the North Dakota Supreme Court. Her paper was titled One Size Does Not Fit All: Differential Appellate Case Management in North Dakota. She was also elected by the graduates to serve as the Class Spokesperson at the graduation ceremony and was awarded the ICM Vice President's Award of Merit for Applied Research.
The ICM Fellows Program is the only program of its kind in the United States. This professional certification program was established more than 45 years ago, in part, by Chief Justice of the United States Warren E. Burger in his call for improving the management of state court administration. The intensive four-phase educational program better prepares court professionals for management and leadership positions. Since the first class of graduates in 1970, nearly 1,270 court professionals in 48 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and 12 foreign countries have become Fellows.
