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.”
