Summit County Assistant Court Executive Officer elected as President of the Ohio Association for Court Administration


Summit County, Ohio: Summit County Common Pleas Court Administrative Judge Amy Corrigall Jones is pleased to announce Susan Sweeney, Summit County Assistant Court Executive Officer, has been elected to serve as President of the Ohio Association for Court Administration (OACA).

Sweeney has over 20 years of legal experience, including 14 years serving as a court administrator and clerk of court. She has been a member of OACA since 2012, serving as secretary in 2015, treasurer in 2016 and president-elect in 2017. Sweeney also serves by appointment of the Chief Justice on the Ohio Supreme Court Advisory Committee on Case Management and Commission on the Rules of Superintendence. As a Certified Court Manager and Certified Court Executive, Sweeney has specialized training in court performance standards, case management, budgeting, court technology, human resources, leadership, vision and strategic planning, education, training and development for court staff.

“In the relatively short time Susan has been with (Summit County) Common Pleas Court, her leadership and innovative spirit have made a huge impact on our court administration. I’m certain she will have a similar impact as the OACA president,” said Judge Corrigall Jones.

Established in 1973, OACA is celebrating its 45th anniversary as the state association for court managers and professionals. The mission of OACA is to enhance professional development and leadership skills, encourage networking and diversity, apply modern management practices to court administration and provide legislative and policy updates. The Association has over 275 members from all Ohio court jurisdictions and other court-related agencies.

Given the mission of OACA, Sweeney’s experience, training and certifications are a perfect fit to serve as the 2018 president.

“The primary role of court administrators is to facilitate the administrative functions of the court, requiring the ability to effectively supervise, manage, and lead the organization. Membership in OACA helps us be more effective in our role and enhances our ability to lead the courts we serve,” Sweeney said. “I am honored that my colleagues have placed their trust in me to lead the Association and I look forward to working with the Executive Board to build on the success of this organization.”
