Annual Meeting, ICLE Solo and Small Firm Institute Set for Sept. 26-28 in Grand Rapids


The State Bar of Michigan ushers in a new era as it holds its 72nd Annual Meeting in conjunction with the ICLE Solo and Small Firm Institute. Both events will take place from Sept. 26-28 at the DeVos Place and Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids.

Other highlights of this year's meeting, themed "An Annual Meeting Like Never Before," include:

  • The Annual Meeting Golf Outing, which begins at noon Wednesday. The registration fee for the four-person scramble at The Meadows at Grand Valley State University includes 18 holes of golf, cart rental, and lunch. Participants are eligible to win awards and prizes.

  • The SBM Awards Banquet, which starts at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. Winners of the five major State Bar awards will be recognized. The Michigan Defense Trial Counsel and the Michigan Trial Lawyers Association will present their Respected Advocate Awards during this ceremony.

  • Thursday's inaugural luncheon, set for noon. Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Clifford W. Taylor will swear in the 73rd president of the State Bar, Ronald D. Keefe, and other officers. The State Bar Representative Assembly and Michigan State Bar Foundation will also honor its 2007 award winners.

  • The Michigan Legal Milestone at Friday's luncheon commemorating the special role of attorney Prentiss M. Brown in the building of the Mackinac Bridge. This year marks the bridge's 50th anniversary. Brown, a St. Ignace native known as the "Father of the Mackinac Bridge," spearheaded the effort to get the span built and served as chair of the Mackinac Bridge Authority for 24 years.
