Bar Leadership Forum 2020

State Bar of Michigan

2020 Bar Leadership Forum

June 12-13
Grand Hotel | Mackinac Island

The State Bar of Michigan takes the health and safety of our members, their families, and our staff very seriously. Currently, planning for the Bar Leadership Forum continues according to schedule. We encourage you to register and make your room reservation now. The final decision to proceed as planned will be made consistent with public health advisories and directives. If the event is cancelled or postponed based on a public health directive, you will receive a full refund of your conference registration and your entire room deposit will be refunded from the Grand Hotel.

Whether you are a leader of a local bar, special purpose bar, or a section leader, the Bar Leadership Forum has something for you.

This invitation-only event offers an innovative opportunity to learn, collaborate, and network with fellow legal professionals.

Friday's programming starts with a joint keynote session with attendees from the Upper Michigan Legal Institute. Consultant Karlene Belyea will speak on Creating Positive Connections in a Multigenerational Workforce.
Significant problems can occur when people from different generations fail to communicate effectively, and there are currently five generations in the workplace with different values to navigate. This session will compare and contrast those values, identify their differing feedback styles, and leave you with plenty of strategies for more effective cross-generational communication.

What past attendees are saying about Bar Leadership Forum...

"The Forum provided a great opportunity to connect with other bar leaders"

"A great opportunity for the SBM section leaders to get re-aligned with key strategies for success."
