TBA Law Blog

The TBA Board of Governors will vote on proposed revisions to the organization’s bylaws after a 21-day period for members to review the proposal. The vote is scheduled to take place in late August. One of the revisions creates a category of non-voting, law firm, employer-level membership. Any law firm in which 100% of its Tennessee-based attorneys are members of the TBA will be eligible to become a law firm member of the association under rules established by the Board of Governors. The bylaws change will accommodate future benefits including a new health insurance plan that the TBA would like to offer its members this fall. The future health plan will offer coverage to a variety of employer members including solo practitioners with at least one qualifying W-2 employee. Proposed revisions to the bylaws can be viewed here and include corrections to existing typographical errors in the current bylaws.
