Applications for State Bar Committee service due April 25

State Bar President-Elect Thomas C. Rombach invites Michigan lawyers to apply now for appointment to committees for the 2014-2015 bar year. Service on the committees is voluntary and occurs through an appointment process that begins with an electronic application that must be filed by Friday, April 25.

"Now more than ever our State Bar needs input from a wide range of voices," Rombach said. "I encourage you to provide service to the legal profession by volunteering for one of our many State Bar committees."

Nearly 30 standing committees work to implement the State Bar Strategic Plan, build effective programs that benefit Michigan lawyers and the public, and improve the administration of justice in Michigan. Appointments for the 2014 bar year are expected to be finalized before Sept. 1.

More information about the committees and a link to the electronic application can be found on the Committee Information page at For additional information, contact Candace Crowley, SBM director of external development, at or 517-346-6319.
