Memberships and Societies

Warren E. Burger Society

The Warren E. Burger Society was formed upon the celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the National Center for State Courts in 1996 to honor individuals who have volunteered their time, talent, and support to the National Center in an exceptional manner. Membership in the Society is granted to volunteers who have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to improving the administration of justice through extraordinary contributions of service or support to the National Center for State Courts.

Society membership is commemorated by the presentation of a limited-edition print of the final portrait of the late Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, who helped found the National Center for State Courts in 1971. Each print is signed and numbered by artist Fran Di Giacomo. The portraits are a gift from Texas attorney Charles M. Noteboom, Esq., who commissioned the original portrait, which hangs in the National Center for State Courts’ headquarters in Williamsburg, Virginia.
