    Volume XXIII, Issue 2 of the Journal has been printed and mailed and is also available online.

    A number of readers have reported receiving copies of the Summer 2003 issue of the Journal with repeated or missing pages. As a result, the printer is sending an E-mail to Section Members offering to provide a replacement copy free of charge to any Member who receives a defective copy. The printer will also be sending a postcard with a similar offer to those Members for whom the Section does not have a current E-mail address.

    1. Publication of Michigan Business Law Journal

    Volume XXIII, Issue 1 of the Journal has been printed and mailed and is also available online at www.michbar.org.

    We have received a substantial number of articles for the next issue, in large part because of the efforts of the Debtor/Creditor Rights Committee in soliciting material for publication.

    The transition to a new ICLE copy editor for the Journal appears to be going smoothly.

    A current schedule of publication dates, dates for submission of articles, and committee assignments is attached.

    2. Council Approval

    At its December 2002 meeting, the Council discussed the possibility of including a short description of each Section committee in the Journal in order to encourage interest in and participation on the committees. In view of the already substantial amount of front matter contained in the Journal (five pages) and the fact that the committee descriptions are available online, the Council may wish to revisit this idea.

    Respectfully submitted,

    Robert T. Wilson
    Publications Director

We understand that ICLE has posted her job and made contingency plans to have its copyeditor who works on business books fill in as required. I would like to thank Sarah for her efforts on behalf of the Journal and wish her well in all her future endeavors.

    This issue is the first to be published in partnership with ICLE and represents the culmination of the Section's plans to restructure the Journal. It features a redesigned format as well as regular columns on topics of interest.

A revised schedule for publication of committee specific topics will be distributed in the near future.

    I would like to thank Mary Hiniker, Dan Kopka and Sarah Royalty of ICLE for their efforts in restructuring the Journal and also past council Chair Dan Minkus for spearheading the effort to produce an improved publication for the Section.
