NASHVILLE (AP) — Several Democratic state lawmakers from Tennessee have been elected to leadership roles within the National Black Caucus of State Legislators.

Rep. Raumesh Akbari was elected treasurer of the national organization at its 40th annual legislative conference in New Orleans last week. Fellow Memphis Rep. Larry Miller was name regional vice chair.

Reps. Brenda Gilmore of Nashville and Karen Camper and G. A. Hardaway of Memphis were named executive members at large.
