This committee also analyzes and plans for future developments and recommends uniform administrative policies and procedures to improve judicial administration.

Both terms will expire on June 30, 2027.

In addition to these two new appointments, Skupin also volunteers with the Arizona Supreme Court serving on two commissions: Diversity, Equity, & Justice in the Judiciary; and Technology. She’s also on the subcommittee of the Arizona Supreme Court Strategic Agenda.
