November 18, 2021   |   Amber Nimocks

Beginning Jan. 3, 2022, the North Carolina Advocates for Justice will resume in-person activities to include meetings of boards and committees, continuing legal education classes, social and networking events and other member events. To the fullest extent possible, NCAJ will offer members and other attendees the option to participate in these events via Zoom.

Before entering an NCAJ event, every individual will be required to:

  • Sign a form attesting that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19
  • OR provide proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the start of the event.

To fill out the attestation form online in advance of the event, click here: https://www.ncaj.com/in-person-attestation-form

While attending NCAJ events, attendees will be required to: 

  • Wear masks while indoors at the NCAJ offices at 701 Corporate Center Drive in Raleigh unless they are eating or drinking while seated.
  • Follow local and venue protocols at NCAJ events held at venues other than 701 Corporate Center Drive in Raleigh.

Anyone who cannot attest to being vaccinated or provide a negative test will not be allowed to attend NCAJ events in person.

NCAJ Executive Director Kim Crouch, with the support of the NCAJ Board of Governors, will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will amend the guidelines as the situation changes. We have designed these after much thoughtful discussion with our priority being the health and safety of our members, staff and guests. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us all stay safe and bring an end to this pandemic.
