NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Senate Clerk Russell Humphrey has been named president of the American Society of Legislative Clerks and Secretaries.

Humphrey, who has served as chief parliamentarian in the state Senate since 1999, was named head of the national group at its annual professional development seminar in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, last week.

The American Society of Legislative Clerks and Secretaries was founded in 1943 to improve legislative administration and enhance communication among clerks around the country. More than 300 clerks, secretaries and legislative support staffers belong to the group.

As president, Humphrey will work both domestically and abroad to improve working relations among clerks.

Humphrey served as chief Senate clerk under then-Speaker John Wilder, a Mason Democrat, until 2007, and since then under Republican Speaker Ron Ramsey of Blountville.
