We are saddened to report the passing of ALA member Mark S. Tallent, 63. Tallent was Firm Administrator at Farrar & Bates, LLP, in Brentwood, Tennessee, and a member of the Middle Tennessee Chapter. He had long been a dedicated volunteer at the chapter, regional and international levels of this Association. Tallent was in the midst of serving a term on the Business Partner Relations Project Team. Previously, he served as Chapter President, Vice President, Treasurer and Newsletter Editor, as well as a Regional Representative in ALA’s former organizational structure.
In 2020, Tallent was honored with ALA’s Outstanding Association Volunteer Award. He was recognized alongside other 2020 and 2021 award recipients at the Association Awards Presentation at the 2021 Annual Conference & Expo. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues.
