The St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners has approved an out-of-state travel request for a circuit court employee.
At the request of Judge Paul Stutesman, commissioners agreed to the plan for court administrator Kathryn Griffin to attend the National Association for Court Management’s annual conference in Scottsdale, Ariz. The six-day event takes place next month.
As president of Michigan’s NACM, a portion of her conference dues will be covered by the association. The balance will be funded by the Michigan Association for Circuit Court Administrators.
Commissioners approved expenses for airfare, airport transportation and meals. Stutesman estimated the county’s cost will amount to about $1,500.
