IDLEWILD — More than half of the members of the Association of Black Judges of Michigan (ABJM) gathered July 22-24 in Idlewild for its inaugural retreat. The theme of the retreat was RESET: Restoration, Education, Service and Everyone Together.
The educational sessions included topics on judicial security, judicial ethics in a changing court environment, and emotional intelligence as a foundation to diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. There was also a judicial wellness activity where attendees participated in Tai Chi. The Retreat ended with a worship service Sunday at the First Baptist Church of Idlewild.
