It is an exciting time at the State Bar, where we are working to improve the delivery of legal services. Our efforts require volunteers from our diverse, talented membership to step forward and serve as esteemed State Bar committee members.
Time is precious and only you can decide if committing to State Bar work is right for you. I am looking for peers who, like me, want to make a positive, systemic difference in our profession and its service to the public through bar leadership. If you embrace demanding work because of the resulting personal fulfilment, apply for committee service and play a meaningful role in the Bar's efforts to improve justice in Michigan.
As president-elect, I will review the applications starting in late May and make the committee appointments by September 1.
Thank you for considering this call to service.
Lori A. Buiteweg
President-Elect, State Bar of Michigan
