News imageNorth Carolina Court of Appeals Chief Judge John C. Martin of Raleigh has been elected president-elect of the Council of Chief Judges of the State Courts of Appeal at the group's annual conference in Houston, Texas, in November. Martin will become president of the Council in October 2013, at the group's meeting in St. Louis, Missouri, succeeding the current president, Judge Gary W. Lynch of Missouri.

Martin has served on the Court of Appeals for 23 years, the last nine years as its chief judge. Prior to his service on the Court of Appeals, he practiced law in Durham and was a North Carolina Superior Court judge for seven years. Martin has also been chairman of the North Carolina Judicial Standards Commission for the past 12 years and a member of the North Carolina Chief Justice's Commission on Professionalism since 2004.

The Council of Chief Judges is a national organization of current, former, and incoming chief judges of the intermediate state appellate courts. Formed in 1980, the Council's purpose is to afford the chief judges of the intermediate appellate courts "a body for consultation and education concerning the improvement of the administration of justice, rules and methods of procedure, and the organization and operation of" the intermediate appellate courts. The Council is the only organization in the nation that addresses the unique educational and peer support needs of the leaders of the intermediate appellate courts of the states.
