TBA Law Blog

Posted by: Barry Kolar on Aug 27, 2019

The TBA Board of Governors this week voted in favor of proposed revisions to the organization’s bylaws previously published to the membership on July 31. The most substantive change created a category of non-voting, law firm, employer-level membership. Under the revised bylaws, 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. TBA employer members will now have access to an affordable association group health insurance plan. Employer members include solo practitioners with at least one W-2 employee working a minimum of 30 hours per week. This TBA exclusive plan could save employer members as much as 30% on the cost of health insurance. No health questions and no pre-existing condition exclusions. If you’d like to be contacted when open enrollment begins (October 1), contact tbams@tnbar.org. Additional details on the plan options will be released over the next few weeks.
