President's Message

Irene M. Bizzoso, Prothonotary, The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. It’s an honor to serve the National Conference of Appellate Court Clerks as it’s forty-forth President. The NCAAC has a tradition of providing high-quality education and support to those who administer appellate courts. As the NCACC President, I am privileged to serve, in a leadership role, a group of individuals whom continuously strive to improve the administration of justice within each of their individual appellate court settings, by sharing best practices focused on the appellate professional and aimed at improvement in the administration of appellate courts. I am also privileged to serve as our group’s liaison to many national organizations dedicated to the improvement of court systems. I anticipate that this collaboration will provide insights to innovative but realistic solutions to the challenges our appellate courts have been facing. If you are interested in becoming involved, please considering becoming a member of the NCACC.

State Court Guide to Statistical Reporting

Members of the NCACC are working with The Court Statistics Project to review and update appellate caseload reporting guidelines. The Court Statistics Project (CSP), after having analyzed several years of appellate court caseload data using the data collection model recommended in the State Court Guide to Statistical Reporting, has become aware of various court processes that differ from the assumptions made by the CSP staff and that may affect the manner in which appellate cases are being counted and compared across courts. In an effort to determine the extent of these variations in process, CSP staff requests that you review the appellate process flowchart and recommended counting rules provided here.
