                      of the district of columbia

                    in the house of representatives

                         Monday, March 18, 2019

  Ms. NORTON. Madam Speaker, I rise today to congratulate Anne B. Wicks 
on her retirement from the District of Columbia Courts.
  The Joint Committee on Judicial Administration appointed Ms. Wicks to 
serve as Executive Officer of the D.C. Courts in February 2000. She is 
the first woman and longest, serving Executive Officer in the Courts' 
  Prior to her appointment as Executive Officer, Ms. Wicks worked for 
the Courts in a number of capacities, including Acting Chief Financial 
Officer, 1999 to 2000; Deputy Executive Officer for Court Operations, 
1997 to 1999; Deputy Director for Research and Development, 1988 to 
1997; and Chief of Research, 1986 to 1988. Ms. Wicks previously held 
positions with the Legal Services Corporation and the Georgetown 
University Law School.
  Ms. Wicks' led the D.C. Courts through many changes over the past 19 
years. She oversaw the integration of 19 stand-alone computer systems 
into trial court case management system. She managed the adoption of 
long-term planning for capital programs in IT and facilities, and the 
development of a comprehensive education and training program. She 
participated in the extensive growth of and renovation to the Courts' 
buildings and Judiciary Square campus, and the adoption of strategic 
management as a governance structure. She also assisted with the 
creation of a strong management team, leadership principles and 
employee engagement initiatives that focus on collaborative and 
integrated judicial and administrative leadership.
  I ask the House of Representatives to join me in recognizing Anne B. 
Wicks for 33 years of outstanding service to the District of Columbia 
Courts. Her steadfast leadership is one of the reasons the D.C. Courts 
are highly regarded around the world.
