									Affinity Bar

November 2011

Dear Bar Presidents:

We are pleased to provide you with the 2011-202 Affinity Bar Associations Directory with current
information on active voluntary Michigan bar associations and their leaders. The directory also
includes information on your Board of Commissioners and Representative Assembly members.
This is a resource we use throughout the year to help connect State Bar members with bar
associations throughout the state and to help connect the public to those associations. In addition
to the directory, we offer several resources to support your work as a bar leader. Some of those

      Four free sets of electronic mailing labels for members in your area
      Website resources including links to your bar association websites
     Online calendar of bar association activities on the State Bar homepage
       (Submit your events to Jennifer and she will post them on the site!)
      Connections electronic newsletter
      Law Day, Constitution Day and other law-related education resources
      Speakers on State Bar programs like the Practice Management Resource Center, Public
        Policy Resource Center, Justice Initiatives including pro bono support and equal access
        initiatives, Diversity in the Profession, and Lawyers and Judges Assistance.

State Bar President Julie Fershtman would like an opportunity to attend one of your meetings to
share talking points about her 2011-2012 State Bar focus. Some of those include the challenge of
rapidly changing technology, globalization of the practice, unauthorized practice of law, new
opportunities for lawyers and the public presented by the Solutions on Self-Help Task Force, and
resources to help lawyers at their desk through the Practice Management Resource Center. Let
Candace know if you’d like Julie to attend a meeting and visit with your members.

Don’t forget that the Bar Leadership Forum is set for June 8-9, 2012 on Mackinac Island, and the
Annual Meeting will take place in Grand Rapids on September 19-21. Please contact either of us if
we can help support you in your work as a bar leader this year, or if we can connect you to any
State Bar resources. Good luck to you!

2011-2012 Affinity Bar Directory             25                       (Current as of November 2011)
       Guidelines for the Programs and Services
     Commissioners Committee Regarding Recognition
       of Local and Special Purpose Bar Associations
                            (Adopted by the SBM Board of Commissioners) Revised July 2006

Recognition of local and special purpose bar associations, listings of local and special purpose bar associations in the
Directory Edition of the Michigan Bar Journal, participation in the local bar president-elect conference sponsored by the
State Bar of Michigan, and involvement in related State Bar activities shall be limited to associations which comply with the
following conditions:

        1. The primary purposes and activities of the association shall be to seek to aid in promoting improvements
           in the administration of justice and advancements in jurisprudence, to improve relations between the legal
           profession and the public, and to promote the interests of the local legal community.
        2. A copy of the bylaws or charters of such associations shall be filed with the State Bar, and any change in
           said bylaws or charters should be filed within ten (10) days after its adoption.
        3. It shall have a presidential year that ends between the dates of April 30 and June 30.
        4. The name of the bar association shall not be misleading or deceptive.
        5. Each local bar association shall hold at least one general meeting per year.
        6. All local bar associations shall be divided as follows:
                (a) General purpose local bar associations, and
                (b) Special purpose bar associations.
        7. Membership in general purpose local bar associations may not be limited by requirements, other than
           geographical, the principal objective of which is unrelated to the purposes and activities set forth in (1)
        8. Membership in special purpose associations may not be limited by requirements, other than geographical,
           the principal objective of which is unrelated to the purposes and activities set forth in (1) above, except as
                (a) Statements of emphasis on specific areas of practice of law are permissible.
                (b) Associations may require affiliation through bylaw or other membership limitation to a parent
                    association, which has been recognized as a special purpose association, or to a local bar
                    association that has been recognized as a general purpose local bar association. (The affiliate
                    special purpose associations shall be recognized only in conjunction with such a parent or local bar
                    association. In all affairs pertaining to recognized bar associations and the State Bar of Michigan
                    only the vote of the parent or local bar association shall be considered.)
                (c) Associations may be limited to members holding or having held public office such as the judges’
                    association, prosecutors’ associations, etc. restricting membership to those persons having held or
                    who now hold such offices.
                (d) Associations may express interest in particular racial or ethnic heritage, but may not invidiously
                    discriminate by excluding anyone seeking membership who shares that interest solely on grounds of
                    race, color, gender, national origin, religion, age, handicap or sexual orientation.

It is the intent of these guidelines to include other bar associations in the work and activities of the State Bar of
Michigan. Uncertainties in the application of these guidelines to the bylaws of a bar association should generally be
resolved in favor of inclusion.

          2. User acknowledges that its use of the State Bar’s mailing list is conditioned upon User’s full
          compliance with the terms and condition contained in this Agreement and that the mailing list
          excludes members who have requested that their contact information not be provided to third

          3. The State Bar’s mailing list may be used only for mailing purposes and may not be used for
          telephone, e-mail or other electronic or personal contact, or to populate a database for any purpose.
          However, a follow-up by telephone or contact by User of a response to an authorized mailing is not
          a prohibited use.

          4. Prior to use of State Bar’s mailing list, User will furnish the State Bar with a copy or sample of all
          literature, advertising material or other matter to be mailed. The State Bar, in its discretion, may
          decline to approve the mailing, in whole or in part. The failure of the State Bar to strictly enforce
          this provision or any other provision in any instance shall not be deemed a waiver of any
          requirement and shall not preclude subsequent enforcement.

          5. User may use State Bar’s mailing list for an approved use one time only. The State Bar, at its sole
          discretion, will decide whether to provide the addresses to User for its use or to require User to
          process its mailing using the State Bar’s resources or a State Bar approved mailing house. User is
          responsible for all expenses relating from the processing of User’s mailing using the State Bar’s
          resources or a State Bar approved mailing house. If User is provided the mailing list, whether in
          hardcopy or electronic format, User will not copy the mailing list or any portion thereof or extract or
          retain any information there from, and at no time will User permit any State Bar mailing list to pass
          into the hands of any other person, association, organization or company. Any prohibited use by
          User shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement for which the State Bar may seek relief as
          provided in this Agreement.

          6. User understands and agrees that the State Bar’s rights, including, but not limited to, common
          law and statutory rights of literary property and copyright in the State Bar’s mailing list and the data
          contained therein are not assigned or released as a result of this Agreement, but are reserved and
          retained by the State Bar, subject to the limited use permitted under this Agreement.

          7. User agrees to forward to the State Bar within thirty (30) days following receipt, any letters or
          other documents (or copies thereof) containing complaints by State Bar’s members or others
          regarding User’s mailing, the matter transmitted therein, or the offered product or service.

          8. State Bar’s charges for the use of its mailing list do not include sales, use, excise or similar taxes.
          Consequently, in addition to the standard charge, the amount of any present or future tax applicable
          to the sale of the labels or data will be paid by User, or in lieu thereof, User will provide the State
          Bar with a tax exemption certificate acceptable to the taxing authorities. In addition, User will be
          responsible for all expenses in the event the State Bar requires that User use the State Bar or a State
          Bar approved mail house to process User's mailing.

          9. The State Bar will make every effort to meet scheduled delivery or mailing dates but will not be
          liable for any failure to meet requested or scheduled dates.

          10. This agreement extends to all rentals of State Bar’s mailing list regardless of the form or medium
          on which they are supplied to User.

          11. User agrees that the State Bar may enforce this Agreement by way of claim for damages,
          temporary restraining order, preliminary or permanent injunction, specific performance, or

          12. For any breach of this Agreement, User will be liable to the State Bar for all damages (plus

          limited to, a claim based on the State Bar's own negligence, even if such claim is false or fraudulent,
          or liability that may arise in connection with or as a result of the State Bar providing a copy of its
          mailing list, or any portion thereof, to the User, and to defend the State Bar against any claim or
          liability that may arise as a result of the theft of the list(s) from User and/or its use by any
          unauthorized user.

                  (b) to indemnify and hold harmless the State Bar, including its Board of Commissioners,
          officers, committee members, and other agents and representatives against any and all liability, losses
          or damages or any expenses whatsoever to the State Bar as a result of any claims, demands,
          damages, costs or judgments against it that may arise in connection with or as a result of the State
          Bar providing its mailing list to the User, including, but not limited to, a claim based on the State
          Bar's own negligence, even if such claim is false or fraudulent, or liability that may arise as a result of
          the theft of the list from User and/or its use by any unauthorized user.

          obligations between the parties existing or arising under previous or future agreements executed by

          damages and remedies) its costs and expenses incurred, including, without limitation, its attorneys'

          18. If any provision or portion of this Agreement is determined to be illegal or unenforceable in any
          respect, such determination will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provisions, each
          of which will be deemed to be independent and severable.
