It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Italian-American Bar Association of Michigan. I am honored to serve as your president for the 2013-2014 year.
First founded in 1930 as the ‘Italian Lawyers Club of Michigan,’ today the ‘Italian-American Bar Association of Michigan’ (IABAM) remains one of the oldest and largest ethnic bar associations in the country. It is a charitable organization comprised of individuals who are leaders within their professions and within their communities. Individuals who are proud of their Italian heritage and who seek to advance Italian-Americans both professionally and personally. Our members maintain a standard and commitment to excellence which fuels our association's continued success.
Membership in the IABAM is more than just a series of delicious dinner meetings. It is an opportunity for those new to our profession to network with members of the bench and bar in an informal setting. It is a place where both mentorships and friendships are formed, knowledge and experiences shared. If you aren’t already a member, I invite you to join us.
As always, we welcome your suggestions and participation.
