Justice of the Peace Tawana Gilbert was selected as a delegate for the Arkansas Association of Quorum Courts at the most recent meeting of the Polk County Quorum Court. Gilbert has served as the Polk County delegate for many years. The Arkansas Association of Quorum Courts sits under the umbrella of the Arkansas Association of Counties, with eight other affiliate associations. Each affiliate association elects its own officers and holds its own continuing education seminars throughout the year. The affiliates are largely responsible for helping to build solid programs and sending recommendations to the legislature that benefit their respective areas.
The next meeting of the Polk County Quorum Court will be Tuesday, February 23, 6 p.m. at the Polk County Office Complex.
