I hope you are staying safe and healthy during this time. The Steering Committee for the Bankruptcy Section of the Western Michigan Chapter of the Federal Bar Association has determined that in light of the COVID-19 crisis, the summer seminar, originally scheduled for Boyne Mountain from July 30-August 1 has been cancelled. While we are disappointed that we are unable to hold our signature event, we believe this is the right decision based on all available information. We look forward to holding the 2021 summer seminar at Boyne Mountain.
We are excited, however, to announce that we will be holding a seminar on September 14, 2020 at the Eberhard Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We envision a program on September 14 that will closely match the educational offerings we had planned for the summer seminar. Instead of spreading the educational sessions over two mornings, we will spread them over a morning and an afternoon. We will replace our traditional “Breakfast with the Judges” with a “Lunch with the Judges” program. And, we will finish the day with a cocktail party. More information will follow, but you can expect great educational content, as well as an opportunity to network with your bankruptcy colleagues and friends.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to me or to any other member of the steering committee.
