Applications for SBM Committee Service due April 24

State Bar of Michigan President-Elect Lori A. Buiteweg invites Michigan lawyers to apply now for appointments to committees for the 2015-2016 year. Service on committees is voluntary and occurs through an appointment process that begins with an electronic application that must be filed by April 24.

“If you are like me, time is your most valuable asset,” Buiteweg said. “My personal investment in bar association work has been fulfilling in so many ways—from the people I meet to the relevant information I learn and decisions I help make.”

There are nearly 30 standing committees. Appointments are expected to be finalized before Sept. 1.

More information and a link to the online application can be found at http://www.michbar.org/generalinfo/committees.cfm. For more information, contact Candace Crowley at ccrowley@mail.michbar.org or (517) 346-6319.
