Young lawyers interested in being considered for these positions should contact YLD President-elect Stacie Winkler at (901) 545-7089 by May 5. After that date, a nominating committee will be convened to consider all applicants. Those recommended for appointment must then be approved by the voting members of the YLD Board.
