As a new board member, Ms. Lewis will also serve as a director of the NCBA Foundation, with a three-year term concluding in 2021.

Ms. Lewis has long been involved in service and leadership with the North Carolina Bar Association. She is a graduate of its 2016 Leadership Academy. She is an active member of the Employment Law Section of the NCBA. She has served several terms as a co-chair for the 4ALL Statewide Day of Service.

Her commitment to the work of the NCBA has been steadfast. “The NCBA is an organization that is near and dear to my heart and I am privileged to have the opportunity to serve as one of its Board Members. Since its inception and my first introduction to the Association, the NCBA has stood by its mission to serve the public and the legal profession. Then, as it is now, we needed a commitment from North Carolina lawyers to do the work that needed to be done for our communities and state – I am honored and thrilled to be of service in this ongoing mission.”
