Committee Chairs Named

The North Carolina Bar Association is pleased to announce the chairs of NCBA Committees for 2014-15. This distinguished group of legal professionals from across the state will provide leadership throughout the year to their respective committees.

Chairs preside over regular meetings of their committees and routinely attend meetings of the NCBA Board of Governors in conjunction with their leadership roles.

The chairs are listed below by committee, city/town and, in most instances, place of business. Where two names follow the committee heading, they are co-chairs.

The NCBA, based in Cary at the N.C. Bar Center, is the state’s largest voluntary organization of legal professionals.
