Moses, Mancl Take New YLD Roles After Winkler Steps Down

Cookeville lawyer Rachel Moses has taken over as president of the TBA’s Young Lawyers Division following Stacie Winkler’s decision to move out of state and relinquish her position with the group. Moses, an attorney with the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee & the Cumberlands, was serving as president-elect. Under the YLD bylaws, a vacancy in the office of president is automatically filled by the sitting president-elect. Moses will serve for two years, completing Winkler’s term and then serving her own term as president in 2015-2016. Winkler, who took office in June, is now in house counsel for Kindred Healthcare in Louisville, Kentucky. She previously worked at Regional One Health in Memphis. Read more about Moses here.

To fill the resulting vacancy in the position of president-elect, the voting members of the YLD Board have approved the appointment of current YLD Vice President Rachel Ralston Mancl to the post. The position of vice president will remain vacant until new elections are held in April 2015. Mancl is an attorney with Hunter Smith & Davis LLP in Kingsport. She will serve for two years as president-elect and then take office as president in June 2016.
