It’s Time To Sign Up For NCAJ Committee Service For 2021-2022
Greetings NCAJ Members,
NCAJ is currently seeking volunteers to serve on its committees.
Volunteers are at the heart of NCAJ’s work. Together, we accomplish incredible things and guarantee the continued protection of North Carolinians’ rights. Each volunteer committee is chaired by a member of the Executive Committee, and the ideas, comments, and concerns expressed at meetings are brought to the attention of the Board of Governors and Executive Committee.

A list of NCAJ committees and descriptions is below. We hope that you will consider participating in one of our committees for the 2021-2022 fiscal year.

The Diversity & Inclusion Committee guides the intentional pursuit of diversity and inclusion within the organization itself, and thereby to promote full and equal participation in NCAJ by all eligible members and the reduction of bias in NCAJ. To promote its good work, NCAJ will look to the Diversity & Inclusion Committee to conduct an annual event for the membership.

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

The Legislative Committee informs and supports the legislative program of NCAJ by considering proposed and pending legislation and by developing NCAJ’s legislative program.
