She will reach him, however, on Friday and make arrangements to hold the seminar on Thursday, May 25, at Dickinson Wright's office in Detroit. It was agreed that this event would be a breakfast meeting.

    Discussion followed on who our intended audience really is, the pros and cons of the Managing Partners Dinner, how to determine "hot" topics and the possibility of utilizing Second City for our program in September at the Annual Meeting. No decisions were reached at this time.

    The meeting was adjourned at approximately 6:15 p.m.
