The TBA YLD Board invites specialty and minority bars in the state to name a representative to serve as an unfunded and non-voting member of the board. The goal of the invited guest program is to increase diversity among the board and provide an opportunity for young lawyers involved in other legal organizations to have a voice in the state bar association. See a list of all organizations invited to send representatives.

East Tennessee Lawyers Association for Women – Each December, ETLAW collects toiletry items to donate to the residents of the YWCA Keys of Hope program. This year's Annual ETLAW Toiletry Drive was a success! ETLAW members were overwhelmingly responsive to the needs of the YWCA; ETLAW made 400 bags welcome bags for residents, filled with toiletry necessities, and members contributed over $800. With that money, ETLAW was also able to donate 18 pairs of gloves, 30+ pairs of socks, 12 USB drives, 14 packs of pens and pencils, 2 huge sets of Tupperware, 18 notebooks, and $200 worth of grocery gift cards.
