Jackson attorney Michelle Greenway Sellers of Rainey, Kizer, Reviere & Bell PLC will take the office of Tennessee Bar Association President in 2020, according to election-qualifying results released today. No other candidate qualified for the vice president position by the Feb. 15 deadline. Sellers, a former YLD President and graduate of the TBA Leadership Law program, currently serves as 7th District Governor on the TBA Board of Governors. She will assume the office of vice president this summer at the TBA Convention in Memphis, then become president-elect during the 2019-2020 bar year prior to assuming her presidency.

Also qualifying without opposition were: East Tennessee Governor candidates Tasha Blakney and Mary Beth Maddox; West Tennessee Governor candidates Mason Wilson and Trey Thacher; Middle Tennessee Governor candidates Rachel Moses and Ramona DeSalvo; Third District Governor candidate David McDowell; Fifth District Governor candidate John Farringer; and Sixth District Governor candidate David Veile. No candidates applied to fill the Eighth District seat, so the Board of Governors may fill the post at its April meeting.

Others qualifying without opposition included: TBA Delegates to the ABA House of Delegates candidates George "Buck" Lewis (position 2), Jackie Dixon (position 4), Danny Van Horn (position 5), and Gail Vaughn Ashworth (position 6).
