Call to CJE 2016 Annual Meeting

CJE-2014-Annual-MeetingEventbrite - CJE 2016 Annual Meeting

Thursday, March 24, 2016 from 5:30 PM8:30 PM

All CJE members are invited and encouraged to attend the 2016 Annual Meeting of Citizens for Judicial Excellence. This meeting is one of the more important meetings for CJE members as elections will be held for officers to serve for the next four years.

The CJE Board will review CJE’s financial status, accomplishments during 2015, and goals for 2016 and beyond as we plan for the 2018 municipal and district court elections. The meeting will include a discussion about indentifying promising judicial candidates and building a farm team of pro tems who will be well-prepared to run for office in 2018. There are likely to be a significant number of open seats in 2018 as well as vacancies that will open to be filled by King and Snohomish county councils.

All members are encouraged to attend and share ideas on races where CJE might play an important role, discuss potential judicial candidates, and “fact check” any rumors that might be floating around out there. As usual, the annual meeting will include a straw poll and discussion of the results which will help guide the organization’s leadership in the coming year.

The meeting commences on Thursday, March 24, 2016, at 5:30 p.m. at Carillon Point (same location as last year’s annual meeting) located at Carillon Point Regus Center, 5400 Carillon Point, Building 5000, 4th Floor in Kirkland. Parking is located directly across the driveway from Building 5000 and is free for those departing after 7:00 p.m. A light dinner of sandwiches, beverages and desert will be provided courtesy of CJE.

Please check the CJE website at for further meeting details. Please RSVP by Tuesday, March 22 so that we can arrange for adequate seating and food/beverages. This is your opportunity, as a CJE member, to discuss important issues for 2016 and beyond. Please note that this meeting is open only to CJE members in good standing* and is not open to guests. We look forward to seeing you there.
