FCCA History


The Federal Court Clerks Association (FCCA) was formed in 1922 in Washington, DC, by a group of 15 federal court clerks and deputy clerks who believed they could voice their views more effectively if they joined together in a formal organization to promote the professionalism and integrity of the federal judiciary.

Since our inception in 1922, the Association has derived its membership from the court family, including District Court, Circuit Court, Bankruptcy Court, and Probation/PTS employees, court reporters, and other stakeholders in the Federal Court system. The Clerks Council was formed in 1981 and the Deputy Clerks Council was formed in 1983.

The annual FCCA conference hosts a Historian Room where you can look back and remember the people, fun times and many accomplishments that help make FCCA what it is today.
