Local Bar Association Swears in New Officers

The Rutherford and Cannon County Bar Association held its monthly Continuing Legal Education Luncheon on Wednesday, January 23, 2019. At the meeting, Circuit Court Judge J. Mark Rogers swore in the 2019 RCCBA Officers.

The 2019 RCCBA Officers include four Murfreesboro attorneys: President Scott Kimberly (Law Office of W. Scott Kimberly); Vice President Jennifer Potts (Young & Potts); Secretary Catherine Mekis (Law Office of Catherine T. Mekis); and Treasurer Joshua Jenkins (Hagan Law Group).

"We have a great year planned for this organization," said RCCBA President Scott Kimberly. "The RCCBA provides continuing education for our local attorneys, but we also sponsor and assist with various events that provide low cost or no cost legal services to the public. We take pro bono service very seriously."

The program also honored Immediate Past President Kirk D. Catron (Kirk Catron Law), who served as a bar officer for four years and served as RCCBA President in 2018.

"What makes this job easy is that we have such great lawyers in this community," Catron told program attendees. "This job is often thankless, but it's made easier by such a great group of lawyers."

The Rutherford and Cannon County Bar Association is a professional organization serving the community of Rutherford and Cannon Counties, Tennessee. The RCCBA Mission is to advance the practice of law in Rutherford and Cannon Counties through continuing legal education for members, service to the court, and service to the community.
