*Formal Hearings with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) in lieu of Board Members; not considered a regularly scheduled meeting.
Dates and locations are tentative until the agenda is posted. Please check with the Board office at 1-800-544-7693 or review the agenda for final schedule. § T.C.A 62-6-109 and Rule 0680-1-.02 requires the Board to meet six (6) times annually; at least once in each grand division of the State. All meetings are open to the public. To have items placed on the agenda for Board discussion, please submit a request in writing. Formal hearings are held in accordance to the provisions of the Uniform Administrative Procedures Act, Title 4, Chapter 5; T.C.A.§§§ 62-6-109; 62-6-111, 62-6-118, 120 and Rule 0680-1-.02. Statutes may be found under the "Law and Rules" on the resources section of the board's website. Any respondent scheduled for a "formal" hearing has the right to be represented by their attorney.
Board meetings are open to the public, however, open complaint cases are presented anonymously to the Board by the Legal section. Parties of the complaint (consumer/complainant and contractor/respondent) are not identified or notified to attend the meeting. In the case of a "Formal Hearing", complaintant parties may be notified by the Legal Section to attend if testimony is needed as a witness. Contractors or the Respondent, will be served with a notice of hearing and charges, and advised to appear with their attorney. Formal Hearings are also posted on the Administrative Law Judge schedule of the Secretary of State's website.
Any disciplinary action taken at the Board's meeting will be published once the case is closed, and listed on the "Monthly Disciplinary Action" of the Department's site. Parties involved with a complaint case will be notified of the Board action after the case is closed by the Legal Section. Cases pending after being authorized for a Formal Hearing or Agreed Consent Order, will remain open and specifics of the cases are not released as public information. More information relative to the complaint process is available at "Consumer Resources".
Special meetings held for public necessity may be conducted pursuant T.C.A. § 8-44-108; T.C.A. § 62-6-109(c); and Rule 0680-1-.03, after giving advanced public notice. Electronic participation by the Board may be necessary.
