1991-2011 Committee Members

Innovations in the California Courts - 20 of Years of Great Ideas
The process of recommending award recipients has evolved over the years. From 1991 through 2001, the Court Management Committee of the Judicial Council, the California Judicial Administration Conference Planning Committee (CJAC), and select AOC staff recommended recipients to the Judicial Council. In 2002, the Kleps Award Committee was formed, and it continues to evaluate and recommend Kleps Award recipients to the Judicial Council.
