Partnership to deliver savings to Tennessee lawyers

NASHVILLE, Sept. 27, 2005 — The Tennessee Bar Association (TBA) has formed a marketing alliance with FedEx that will deliver savings to the TBA’s 9,000 members on select FedEx Express®, FedEx Ground® and FedEx Express® International services. This marks the first time that FedEx has joined with a state bar association to offer cost-effective shipping solutions.

“We are pleased to have FedEx as our strategic ally,” states Allan Ramsaur, TBA Executive Director. “Our members are eligible for premium shipping options at special savings. The legal profession demands fast, reliable delivery of time-critical shipments and FedEx has a demonstrated history of meeting deadlines effectively, reliably and on time.”

“Providing the best value to our customers and the communities we serve is a very important to FedEx,” said Edward L. Stanton III, a senior attorney with FedEx in Memphis and a member of the TBA’s Board of Governors. “Building relationships with organizations like the TBA and extending this value to its members is indicative of our commitment to the state of Tennessee and of our support of the legal community.”

The TBA offers its members a variety of programs and services designed to assist in professional development. This FedEx alliance is a prime example of the TBA’s affinity programs that benefit the legal community.
