Office of Communications and Intergovernmental Relations
The Office of Communications and Intergovernmental Relations represents the AOPC before the state's executive and legislative branches of government and the media.
As media liaison, staff field inquiries from reporters, draft press releases, publish the AOPC annual report, develop other publications and set up press conferences. The office also monitors the progress of legislation in the General Assembly; compiles and publishes a legislative summary when the General Assembly is in session; and, when appropriate, comments on the effect legislation may have on the fiscal and administrative operations of the judicial system. Staff also monitor and report on legislation that may require changes to the software programs relevant to those courts.
