My wife Beth and I have been active boaters most of our lives. Our daughters, Anna (20) and Emily (17), share our love of the water and boating lifestyle and we have many family memories on the boat. Our family also enjoys the times we spend together at the SBYC where we have met so many good friends who are just as enthusiastic about boating as we are. I am a partner with the law firm Warner Norcross & Judd LLP focusing on corporate law, business/commercial transactions, estate planning and trust administration. I am also involved with a number of other organizations serving as a Board member of the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, the Bay Area Community Foundation, Horizon Bank (Community Advisory Board), Wenonah Park Properties, Inc. Double Tree Hotel – Bay City) and the Junior League of the Great Lakes Bay Region (Community Advisory Board). My wife Beth teaches second grade at Bangor Lincoln Elementary. Both of our daughters are Spartans. Anna recently graduated from MSU, James Madison College, and is now in her first year of law school at the MSU College of Law. Emily is currently a sophomore in the MSU Honors College and is studying business. Like many other members of the Club, our family is very interested in its continued success. This depends on maintaining an active membership and the ability to attract and keep new members. As a Board member, I will strive to focus on these areas.
