Two open positions will be filled by the Tennessee Bar Association Board of Governors at its June 9 meeting. The first — 6th District Governor — is an open seat created when no one sought to be considered for it by the deadline. The 6th District covers Giles, Lawrence, Humphreys, Houston, Wayne, Perry, Cheatham, Stewart, Lewis, Hickman, Montgomery, Sumner, Maury, Dickson, Robertson and Williamson counties.

The second position is the unexpired term for the 7th District Governor. This vacancy is being created by Jonathan Steen assuming the vice president position. The 7th District covers Henry, Decatur, Hardeman, McNairy, Carroll, Chester, Hardin, Madison, Henderson, Fayette and Benton counties. The individual who fills this seat will serve for one year. Under the new configuration of the board adopted this year, the 7th and 8th districts will be combined into a new 7th District and a second grand division governor seat will be created.

In accordance with Article 47 of the TBA Bylaws, the board may fill the vacancies, with terms through Spring 2013, by election at its June 2012 meeting. Individuals interested in being considered for either of these positions should email TBA Executive Director Allan F. Ramsaur or call him at (615) 383-7421 by June 4.
