Maddin Hauser is pleased to announce that the Oakland County Bar Association (OCBA) has awarded the OCBA Employment Law Committee, led by Shareholder Kaitlin A. Brown, with its annual Committee of the Year Award.
The Employment Law Committee has been recognized as one of the most active committees at the OCBA and has been acknowledged for its efforts in securing dynamic speakers, spreading the word about the benefits of the OCBA and structuring the committee to encourage engagement. Some of the speakers who presented at the committee’s monthly meetings this year included: Gail Cober, Director of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Detroit; Sylvia Elliott, Director of Office of Legal Affairs for the Michigan Department of Civil Rights; and Terry Moran, Regional Director of Detroit Regional Office for the National Labor Relations Board.
The committee has been recognized for embodying the characteristics of what the OCBA committees are meant to be: communities of practice. The Committee of the Year awards are given each year at the OCBA’s Annual Meeting to those committees that have accomplished significant results.
The announcement was made by the firm’s President and CEO, Steven D. Sallen. “Katie exemplifies the leadership and engaged participation that creates positive results in her role at the Oakland County Bar Association and within our firm. We are pleased that the committee she leads has been recognized for the hard work and dedication she continuously displays,” stated Sallen.
