Education Committee
The Education Committee organizes the Annual Conference, which is held at different locations throughout the state of North Carolina, doing everything from selecting keynote and CLE speakers to arranging for publicity, hotel accommodations, and manuscripts. The conference provides an opportunity every year for NCAWA members to gather and share experiences and training. We also use this conference to conduct our annual business meeting and determine legislative resolutions for the upcoming year.
