Policing model topic of July 20 webinar by DBA

“Creating a Transformative Model of 21st Century Policing” is the topic of a complimentary webinar offered by the Detroit Bar Association on Monday, July 20, at 4 p.m.

Retired Detroit Police Chief Isaiah McKinnon, who formerly served as an associate professor of education at the University of Detroit Mercy, will be the featured speaker.

“The relationship between the community and the police is fundamentally changing,” said a spokesperson for the DBA. “Departments should be at the forefront of a transformative model of public safety, for all possible outcomes, including ‘defunding’ the police. Chief McKinnon notes that the arrest of Derek Chauvin and three other
Minneapolis police officers for the murder of George Floyd is a move in the right direction. However, as hundreds of thousands of people around the world demand accountability, now is the time for meaningful change.”

The presentation will draw upon McKinnon’s personal experience and observations from more than a half-century of policing to “explore various options and opportunities for police to gain the trust of all community members,” according to the spokesperson.

CEO elected to board of Leadership Oakland

Christine Logan, president and CEO of James E. Logan & Associates, has been elected to a three-year term on the board of directors for Leadership Oakland, a leadership and networking organization serving Southeast Michigan.

Logan, who earned her bachelor of arts degree in advertising from Michigan State University in 1991, is a graduate of the Leadership Oakland Cornerstone Program, which has brought together leaders from corporate, civic, and nonprofit organizations throughout the region to delve into key business issues. In 2014, she was recognized as a “Leader of Leaders” honoree.

With 30 years of experience in the personal injury claims industry, Logan is the principal of the only female-owned, independent structured settlement consulting firm in the U.S. As an active member of the National Structured Settlements Trade Association (NSSTA), Logan serves on the Legislative and Regulatory Committee and also is a member of the Innovation Committee. From 2001-14, she was on the board of directors and served as liaison to the Government Benefits Committee, addressing issues involving the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, and Medicaid.

Logan obtained the designation of Certified Structured Settlement Consultant (CSSC) from the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame in 1995. She was in the inaugural class of the NSSTA master’s program at Notre Dame in 2015, becoming just one of only 38 professionals to hold the MSSC designation.

A longtime resident of Oakland County, Logan is the mother of two children, Joe and Sabrina. Joe graduated in May from the Eli Broad School of Business at MSU with a degree in supply chain management. Sabrina is a junior at Grand Valley State University, where she is studying advertising and media relations.
