BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP
When you join the NCAWA and CWB, you can expect a networking forum for business development, access to professional programs, mentoring and leadership opportunities, rewarding work on our committees, and more. Our vision is to build a strong community of women lawyers who make a difference in the profession and in society at large. Our goals are to increase the effective participation by women in the justice system, in public office, and within the legal profession; to promote the rights of women under the law; and to promote the welfare of the women attorneys of North Carolina. The benefits of CWB membership include:

Through your involvement, you have the opportunity to network with hundreds of members, both women and men, from the judiciary, law firms, corporations, non-profits, and the government.
