TVARA Valleywide President

Welcome to 2020 and a new decade with the TVA Retirees Association! We are excited for a new year ahead.

I appreciate the opportunity to serve as the Valleywide President. We owe a big thanks to the outgoing President DeWitt Burleson, who served for the past three years.

DeWitt brought thoughtfulness and dedication to the position, and we are grateful for his service to the organization.

We have three new chapter presidents this year.

JoAnne Lavender is President of the Knoxville Chapter, Daniel Simmons is President of the Huntsville Chapter, and Mickey Blackburn is President of the Johnsonville Chapter.

Your chapter officers are busy planning the quarterly meetings for the coming year. Please plan to attend one or more of the meetings and show your support. It’s a great opportunity to reconnect with friends and colleagues.

Thanks again for allowing me to serve as your President. Feel free to contact me or your chapter officers with any questions or recommendations to improve our chapter meetings.

The TVA Retirees Association is the official organization of all TVA retirees.  It was organized to serve the varied interests of TVA and its retirees and their beneficiaries, and to help keep them informed of TVA developments affecting their interests.  For more information visit
