On March 6, 2019, Bone McAllester Norton hosted the Young Bankers Division of the Tennessee Bankers Association (TBA) for lunch and a panel discussion, led by Bone Law attorney Trace Blankenship, as part of their annual “Day on the Hill” at the Tennessee State Capitol.
Each March, the Young Bankers Division organizes this unique outing in conjunction with TBA’s government relations team. “Day on the Hill” encourages engagement in the political and regulatory process by providing an opportunity for bankers under the age of 40 to observe the General Assembly in session and meet with key legislators and staffers. Participants learn about the procedures of the state’s governing body, tour the Capitol and also attend committee sessions.
The Young Bankers Division was established in 1960 to nurture the professional development of the state’s bank officers, and prepare them to become the industry’s next generation of leaders through professional development, advocacy and community involvement opportunities.
Trace Blankenship's practice is concentrated on mergers and acquisitions, venture capital/capital-raising transactions, securities regulation, and corporate governance/board strategy. He has been named to Best Lawyers in America every year since 2014 and was selected in 2017 and again in 2018 for the Nashville Business Journal’s “Best of the Bar.” He’s a longtime member of the Tennessee Bankers Association’s Bank Lawyers Committee and was a contributing author of Director’s Handbook: A Field Guide to 101 Situations Commonly Encountered in the Boardroom, published by the American Bar Association in 2017. Trace serves as general counsel and as a board member of the law firm.
