SBM Seeks Applications for 2016-2017 Committee Service

State Bar of Michigan President-Elect Lawrence P. Nolan invites Michigan lawyers to apply now for appointments to committees for the 2015-2016 bar calendar year. Service on committees is voluntary and occurs through an appointment process that begins with an electronic application that must be filed by April 29.

“I find that investing time in State Bar work is incredibly fulfilling, adding otherwise unparalleled meaning to my career,” Nolan said. “ By joining the rich history of service to the State Bar through participation as a member of one of the many SBM committees, you may play a meaningful role in the State Bar’s efforts to improve justice in Michigan.”

Nearly 30 standing committees work to implement the State Bar Strategic Plan, build effective programs that benefit Michigan lawyers and the public and improve the administration of justice in Michigan. Appointments for the 2016-2017 bar year are expected to be finalized before September 1.

More information about the committees and a link to the online application can be found on the Committee Information page. For more information, contact Candace Crowley at or (517) 346-6319.
