CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE (WDEF-TV)-- The Tennessee Conference on Social Welfare brought officials together to spread new ideas when it comes to social service.

During their 100 years they push changing and eliminating injustices across Tennessee.

Terri Lawson, director of TCSW, understands how important these conferences are.

It's nice to be in a situation where they can communicate with other professionals that have similar situations as them and can learn something at the same time," she said.

Learning what others in their profession are doing. Also, awarding those who have gone above and beyond the normal call of duty.

Time Hyde received an Advocacy Award. He is the founder of the Family Court Services of East Tennessee. He appreciates this opportunity not for the recognition but to see and speak with those who go through the same as he.

He said, "It kind of gives you a boost to see the different people and hear their stories of how they have survived."

The workshops and the keynote speaker Andy Berke were all in effort to continue the work that the Tennessee Conference on Social Welfare has done for 100 years.
