After five months of studying the issue, the state Supreme Court’s Adult Guardianship Study Commission is scheduled to discuss recommendations on how to improve the guardian/conservator system in New Mexico on Friday.
The commission will hear from its subcommittees for proposed improvements to recommend to the state Supreme Court. The meeting runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the State Bar Center at 5121 Masthead St. NE.
It has until Oct. 1 to submit a report to the Supreme Court.
Chairwoman Wendy York has agreed to speak privately with people who have experienced adult guardianship issues but haven’t sent comments or appeared publicly before the commission.
Those interested should email her scheduler at nmguardianshipcommission@gmail.
At its Aug. 11 meeting, the commission inadvertently released an incorrect email address, which then appeared in Sunday’s Journal newspaper.
