Climbers association hosts second annual Buy Your Own Boulder Field event
Leaders with the Southeast Climbers Coalition announced that the second annual Buy Your Own Boulder Field fundraiser event will be Nov. 8 at 6 p.m. at The Crash Pad, which is on the Southside.
The climber's association is a nonprofit that aims to protect climbing in the southeast.
And leaders are celebrating the organization's 20th anniversary. They launched the event last year as a way to raise funds for the organization's most recent land acquisition—Alabama’s Hospital Boulders, a purchase made possible by an $80,000 loan from the Access Fund.
The event raised $7,000 last year and leaders still need to raise $50,000 for the hospital, so all the proceeds of this event will go toward that effort.
The schedule of events includes: $5 chili dinner and beer; a live auction featuring items donated by companies in the outdoor industry as well as local business, artists and photographers at 7:30 p.m,; and an immersion art installation presented by regional photographer Andrew Kornylak.
Leaders with Henderson Hutcherson & McCullough recently announced that two of their employees achieved noteworthy certiciations.
Valuation expert Travis Flenniken successfully completed the certification process with the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts to earn the Certified Valuation Analyst credential. The CVA credential is granted only to qualified individuals with considerable professional experience in the field of business valuation.
Pamela R. Morris, CPA, CFE, was also recently certified as a SOAR to Strategic Excellence Consultant.
Miller & Martin adopt pro bono model
Leaders with Miller & Martin announced they have adopted the Pillar Law Firm Model for its pro bono efforts within the region.
As the Pro Bono Firm of the Year for 2013, Miller & Martin was approached by the Access to Justice Commission and the Tennessee Supreme Court to initiate the Pillar Law Firm Model in Chattanooga in working with Legal Aid of East Tennessee, according to a news release.
“We are excited to have Miller & Martin’s support by serving as the inaugural Chattanooga law firm to embrace this new model. This model will serve as a way of streamlining our work in coordinating pro bono cases with the right firms for those in need in our area,” Charlie McDaniel, Pro Bono Project Director at Legal Aid of East Tennessee, said in a prepared statement.
