New Officers


The new officers for the Davis-Dunnings Bar Association (DDBA) elections are (l-r) Alisyn Crawford, communications officer; Mary Bowen, president; Dan Doyle, treasurer; Ernscie Augustin, secretary; and Rob Easterly, vice president. The DDBA (formerly known as the Lansing Black Lawyers Association) was founded in 1981, led by Hon. Clinton Canady III and Hon. Hugh B. Clarke Jr.; at the time, it was the only local bar association outside of Detroit formed to address the needs of African-American attorneys. Formally incorporated in 1983, the DDBA is considered a special purpose bar association by the State Bar of Michigan, and provides African-American attorneys in Mid-Michigan networking and professional development opportunities. .
