From President-Elect Andy Banzhoff

Andy Banzhoff

Volunteers are the heart of NCAJ’s work. We need you to organize and execute the bold vision that we share for the organization. Together, we accomplish incredible things and guarantee the continued protection of North Carolinians’ rights.

Serving on a committee allows your voice to be heard. A member of the Executive Committee chairs each committee and brings the ideas, comments, and concerns expressed at committee meetings to the attention of the Board of Governors and Executive Committee.

Please consider participating in one of our committees for the 2023-2024 fiscal year:

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee
The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee guides the intentional pursuit of diversity, equity and inclusion within the organization. It promotes full and equal participation in NCAJ by all eligible members and the reduction of bias in NCAJ. NCAJ will look to the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee to guide and conduct events for the membership.

Education Committee 
The Education Committee studies, formulates and recommends continuing legal education programs.

Legal Affairs Committee 
The Legal Affairs Committee is responsible for the development and advocacy of NCAJ positions on legal and ethical issues. It includes an Ethics Subcommittee to monitor the NC State Bar Ethics Committee and advocate as appropriate and an Amicus Curiae Committee to monitor appellate litigation, receive requests for amicus participation and participate as amici as appropriate.

Legislative Committee 
The Legislative Committee informs and supports NCAJ’s Advocacy Strategic Plan by identifying and evaluating proposed and pending legislation and by helping to develop NCAJ’s legislative program.

Membership Committee 
The Membership Committee oversees the community priority of NCAJ, which is membership recruitment and retention, print and electronic publications, social activities, listservs, Convention and other gatherings of members, and public service/pro bono projects.
