Michigan Bar Journal


The State Bar Board of Commissioners seeks names of persons interested in filling the following agency vacancies.

Institute of Continuing Legal Education (ICLE) Executive Committee: One vacan­cy for a four-year term beginning Oct. 1, 2022. The role of committee members is to assist with the development and approval of ICLE education policies; formulate and promulgate necessary rules and regulations for the administration and coordination of ICLE’s work; review and approve the ICLE annual budget and activities contemplat­ed to support the budget; and, whenever possible, promote ICLE’s activities. The com­mittee meets three times a year, usually in February, June, and October.

Michigan Indian Legal Services (MILS) Board of Trustees: Two vacancies for three-year terms beginning Oct. 1, 2022. MILS bylaws require that a majority of the board be Native American. The board sets policy for a legal staff that provides spe­cialized Native American law services to Native American communities statewide. The board hires an executive director. The board is responsible for operating the cor­poration in compliance with applicable law and grant requirements. Board members should have an understanding and appre­ciation for the unique legal problems faced by Native Americans. Board members are responsible for setting priorities for alloca­tion of the program’s scarce resources. The board is accountable to its funding sources. The board meets on Saturdays in Traverse City on a minimum quarterly basis.

The deadline to apply for the ICLE Executive Committee or MILS Board of Trustees is July 1.

Interested applicants should submit a re­sume and letter outlining their background and nature of interest in the position to Marge Bossenbery at mbossenbery@mich­bar.org. Applications must be submitted via email. Applications received after the dead­line will not be considered.
