Dunwoody Municipal Court Associate Judge Kenneth Wickham has been selected as the next president of the Georgia Council of Municipal Court Judges.

Wickham’s term will begin in June 2012. He was elected by the 200-member body at its annual meeting in Savannah in June.

The Georgia Council of Municipal Court Judges is the governing and oversight body for courts in the state of Georgia. The president holds a voting seat on the Judicial Council of the State of Georgia, which is made up of the presidents of associations of Georgia courts including: Supreme Court, Appeals, Superior, State, Probate, Juvenile, Magistrate and Municipal courts.

“The City of Dunwoody takes great pride in the accomplishments of Judge Wickham and applauds his new role as President of the CMCJ,” said Dunwoody Mayor Ken Wright. “This election is not only a strong indication of how well-respected Judge Wickham is amongst his peers, but one more example of the exemplary people we have working for the City of Dunwoody.”

This is not Wickham’s first leadership role with the organization.  He has held the titles of district representative, secretary and vice president with the Georgia Council of Municipal Court Judges.
