Applications due May 11 for SBM Committee service

Michigan lawyers are invited to apply for appointment to committees for the upcoming year. Service on the committees is voluntary and occurs through an appointment process that begins with an application that must be filed by May 11.

''Committee service is an excellent way for state bar members to make a difference in our profession and the justice system," said State Bar President-Elect Bruce Courtade. "From personal experience, I can tell you that my committee service not only gave me great insight into what the state bar does on a daily basis to help its members and serve the public, but it also introduced me to lawyers from around the state who became great sources of inspiration, friendship and support."

Nearly 30 standing and special committees work to implement the state bar's strategic plan, build effective programs that benefit Michigan lawyers and the public, and improve the administration of justice in Michigan. Appointments for the 2012-2013 bar year are expected to be finalized before September 1.

Applications can be submitted by going to www.michbar. org/generalinfo/nomination.cfm. For more information, contact Candace Crowley at ccrowley@mail.michbar.org or 517-346-6319.
