TNGS SECOND QUARTERLY MEMBERSHIP MEETING

Please join us for the Second Membership Meeting for the year open to members and non-members. We encourage everyone to attend this meeting in order to receive an overview of what is going on with our Society, upcoming programs and events.

Our speaker after the membership meeting will be Maury Nicely, attorney and historian.  He will speak on the 1964 Jimmy Hoffa trial in Chattanooga.

In January 1964, Jimmy Hoffa, the president of the Teamsters labor union, was put on trial along with five other men in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on charges of jury tampering. The six-week trial, probably the most notorious to ever occur in Chattanooga, was beset with allegations of government surveillance, wiretapping, juror misconduct, fabricated testimony, Cuban gunrunning, threats of assassination, and even the procurement of prostitutes for jurors by the federal government. The outcome of the trial would set into motion events that would culminate in the disappearance of Hoffa a decade later. In this program, Maury Nicely, the author of Hoffa in Tennessee: The Chattanooga Trial That Brought Down an Icon, will share the lively story of the “Hoffa trial,“ its beginnings, and its aftermath.

Access will be through GoToWebinar. Instructions and Connectivity Link will be forwarded via email to all registrants upon registration, six days prior and again 1 hour prior to the event. Making the connection is quick and easy only requiring a computer and Internet connectivity from wherever you chose to watch the event. Your questions help drive the meetings, and we will be there to help each other.
