Message from the President
Greetings from the Great Lakes Bay Region!
This year WLAM the GLBR is celebrating its 11th year as a region! We are a very large region geographically, 11 counties to be exact, but we considering ourselves a close-knit community. We strive to grow our membership every year and stay connected with all of the communities within our region.
Some of our signature events have included our Annual Meeting wherein we have local attorneys and Judges speak, review our previous year, and swear in our board of directors. We also have established some annual events that have become a staple in our region. Our annual Christmas party at the Frankenmuth Farmers Market includes fundraising for local women’s shelters, black jack tables, and home baked goods by our members.
We are committed to raising money for local charities such as Underground Railroad, Emmaus House, and Hidden Harvest. We also are focused on presenting female leaders in local schools and throughout the community during local events such as career day and Law Day.
In 2018, we created our first regional award in honor of the first known female attorney to practice in this region, Margaret Louise Rorke (Curry) who was sworn into the practice on November 9, 1942. In 2019, The Honorable Janet T. Boes was honored as the second recipient of this award.
The Great Lakes Bay Region invites you to join us at any of our gathering which are listed on the calendar of the WLAM website as well as our regional Facebook page.
