Corporate Counsel Pro Bono Initiative: A Coordinated Approach 

As you likely know, the Corporate Counsel Pro Bono Initiative (CCPBI) helps foster a coordinated approach to pro bono work and support for the access to justice community by corporate and in-house legal departments across the state. CCPBI is a partnership of the Tennessee Bar Association (TBA) Access to Justice Committee, the TBA Corporate Counsel Section and the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), which has raised more than $500,000 and awarded dozens of grants to Tennessee legal aid organizations over the past 11 years.



We are finalizing Gala sponsors and sale of individual tickets. Tennessee law firms, corporations, organizations, and individuals are invited to support the Initiative by becoming recognized sponsors at the 11th annual CCPBI Gala. If you have not already, please consider becoming a sponsor of CCPBI or purchasing a ticket to attend.

If you have contacts at other organizations who may be interested in becoming sponsors or purchasing individual tickets, please feel free to contact them or provide information to Liz Todaro so a CCPBI Working Group Member can be in touch with them.  Liz is also securing individual sponsors for tickets for our legal aid organizations to be represented at the Gala. Even if someone is unable to attend personally, they can still purchase a ticket that will be utilized by one of our CCPBI grantee organizations.  More information is available on the TBA website at: http://www.tba.org/CCPBI-Gala-2017


2017 CCPBI Gala – HOTEL (Saturday Night)

The TBA has secured a small block of rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn Nashville, located at 305 Korean Veterans Boulevard, just around the corner from the location of Saturday night’s Gala. 

The rate is $289/night and if you do need a room for Saturday night, please contact Liz ASAP as we have very few rooms left in the block.
