The Taxation Section has launched a new website and interactive online community for its members—SBM Connect. This private community will enhance the way we communicate and build relationships through the Section. Log in to SBM Connect today and see what the buzz is all about!
- ACCESS to archived seminar materials and the Michigan Tax Lawyer
- FIND upcoming Section events
- NETWORK via a comprehensive member directory
- SHARE knowledge and resources in the member-only library
- PARTICIPATE in focused discussion groups
SBM Connect will eventually replace the current section website. Both websites will run concurrently to allow you time to discover the new tools and features available to members.
Welcome Letter From the Chair
Dear Taxation Section Member,
Check out the Taxation Section's newly-launched, interactive website. Through SBM Connect, this site will allow members to easily find upcoming Section events, network with other Section members, share knowledge and resources in the member-only library, and participate in focused discussion groups.
With over 1,200 members, the Taxation Section is a dynamic, active organization offering a broad range of events and activities. Our members include tax practitioners from small, medium, and large law firms, solo practices, accounting firms, corporations, government, and law schools. While many of our members are well-seasoned lawyers who have been active in the Section for many years, the Taxation Section has a strong history of welcoming new members, and we are especially interested in supporting and gaining new ideas from lawyers in the early stages of their careers.
As you will see through exploring this website, there are many opportunities for participating in our Section, and we welcome your involvement. The Section Committees, the "engine" of our Section, include Estates & Trusts, Employee Benefits, Federal Income Tax, Tax Practice & Procedures, State & Local Tax, and Young Tax Lawyers. You will find a calendar of Committee events within this site. Feel free to contact our Committee chairs for more information on any of these activities.
We also have opportunities to assist with social media, participate in public policy, or volunteer in the Pro Bono Referral Panel Program. In addition, we are always looking for timely, insightful, and well-written articles for publication in our nationally-recognized publication, the Michigan Tax Lawyer.
If you are interested in joining the Taxation Section or becoming a more active member, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or the Taxation Section's Program Facilitator, Brian Figot, at email@example.com.
I look forward to seeing you at a future Taxation Section event.
Marjorie Gell, Chair
Taxation Section of the State Bar of Michigan
