2016 Annual Meeting & Dinner

Friday, May 13, 2016 was an eventful evening for the TCBA at the Indian Summer Golf & Country Club!  During the Business meeting there
were By-Law changes adopted, a new Executive team was accepted for the Board of Directors, and a Financial Review was provided.

The evening started with delicious appetizers and music by The Oly Mountain Boys who play bluegrass with high-energy drive and a Pacific Northwest bent, mixing traditional tunes with revolutionary original bluegrass compositions.  TCBA Member, Tye Menser, (pictured on the far right of the band) is the lead vocals and plays the Banjo.  Thank You Oly Mountain Boys for entertaining us!

After a delicious dinner, it was time to announce the 2016 Bigelow Award Recipient. Congratulations to Jim Powers for being named this years’ Lawyer of the Year with the Bigelow Award.  John Skinder gave a warm introduction for Jim.  Jim then took the podium and delivered a heartfelt story about his journey to becoming an Attorney and his appreciation for winning this award.  

Congratulations, again, Jim… well deserved!

Next it was time to say THANK YOU to Terry Church for his term as TCBA President.  Terry led the TCBA over the last year and will now step into the role as Immediate Past President.  He received a plaque for his service and gave a speech about the past year as

President. He recognized the Honored Members who are TCBA Members and with the WSBA for 50+ years and recognized the
Judiciary in attendance.

After that it was time to say WELCOME to the new TCBA President, Megan Card.  Megan gave a great speech about her background as an Olympia native and her journey to becoming an Attorney.  Megan has been President-Elect over the last year and was in charge of the lunch time CLE’s.  As President this year she will lead the membership well.
