KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Mike Hammond, Knox County Criminal Court Clerk since 2014, has been selected as President of the Tennessee State Court Clerks Association for 2025. He will serve as President-elect for 2024.

“I am grateful to my fellow clerks from across the state for giving me the chance to serve them,” said Criminal Court Clerk Mike Hammond. “I look forward to assisting them in sharing ideas on how to improve their offices.”

The TSCCA is a statewide organization representing the interests of the State Court Clerks in each of Tennessee’s 95 counties. The TSCCA focuses on ensuring laws, rules, and procedures are enacted to improve the legal process overseen by the state court system.

In addition, the TSCCA works with the Administrative Office of the Courts to hold annual conferences for continuing clerk education. In consultation with the Board, the State President selects the site for the annual convention. Clerk Hammond has selected Knoxville to host the 2025 TSCCA Spring Conference, bringing 125 elected and appointed clerks and more than 25 industry partners from across the country to Knoxville.

“I am excited to show my hometown to clerks from Memphis to Mountain City,” said Clerk Hammond. “In addition to the education seminars, we will have several events to showcase our great community.”

Clerk Hammond has been an active member of the TSCCA since he was elected to serve as the Criminal Court Clerk of Knox County in 2014. He has served as the Conference Chair for five years, been a member of the Board of Directors, and served on several subcommittees, including the Legislative Affairs Committee. He was named “Outstanding Court Clerk of the Year” in 2022.

Clerk Hammond’s term as the President of the TSCCA will begin January 1, 2025.
