Tisinger Vance, and Steve Minor in particular, were engaged by the Board of Cobb EMC during a tumultuous and uncertain period. An entirely new Board had been elected by members who wanted to see significant positive change. Steve was invaluable in helping, guiding, and advising as we drafted an entirely new set of bylaws for member approval, talked through issues and dealt with competing needs and interests. The firm's historical knowledge and Steve's personal expertise became a valued asset in our efforts, and what they helped us craft was not only approved by our members, but stands as the most useful and thoughtful set of bylaws Cobb EMC has ever had.
