NASHVILLE, JANUARY 23 2016 — While winter storms kept many TBA leaders from attending the annual TBA Leadership Conference in Nashville, leadership training programs took place, as did meetings of the House of Delegates, Board of Governors and a number of committees. 

The annual Public Service Luncheon was moved from War Memorial Coliseum to the Tennessee Bar Center's Nippert Hall, where a number of attorneys were honored for their good work. Nashville Congressman Jim Cooper delivered the keynote address. 

Among those honored were Libby Sykes, the Harris Gilbert Pro Bono Volunteer of the Year; Dave Yoder, the Ashley T. Wiltshire Public Service Attorney of the Year; and Sara Page, the Law Student Volunteer of the Year.
