Section Accomplishments Recognized

TBA President Danny Van Horn today recognized the work of three TBA sections by presenting them with Section Cup awards during the Section Chairs Roundtable at the TBA Annual Convention in Memphis. Over the past year, sections accumulated points for holding meetings and CLEs or providing new services to members. Sections of like size competed against each other for the honor. The TBA Appellate Practice Section was named the Section Cup recipient for smaller TBA sections, with Executive Council member Buck Lewis accepting the award on behalf of the section. The TBA Criminal Justice Section was named Section Cup recipient for mid-sized sections, with Executive Council member Joe Murphy accepting the award on behalf of the section. And the TBA Health Care Law Section was named Section Cup recipient for larger sections, with 2012 Section Chair Kim Looney accepting the award on behalf of the section.
