Leadership Development
We encourage our members to become involved in one or more of our committees.  The experience gained is invaluable, and provides a great foundation for further leadership positions.

Professional Development
Each year, through our Chapters and Annual Conference, NCAWA organizes a wide variety of dynamic programs. Typically held during lunchtime or after work, our programs address topics that include substantive legal issues, practice development, career development, and matters of general concern to all women.  These programs feature experts, authors, dignitaries, and government officials, many of whom are our very own members.

An Instant Network
Membership in NCAWA opens doors.  Through your involvement in NCAWA, you have the opportunity to network with women and men who are at the very top of our profession.  Members of NCAWA support each other, developing mentoring relationships, serving as role models, and creating opportunities for one another.

First-Class Events
Each year, the NCAWA hosts annual events that provide members an opportunity to meet and hear from prominent individuals in the profession. 
Recognition and Visibility
We all know it’s awkward to toot your own horn.  Let NCAWA promote your accomplishments and achievements in our newsletters and e-blasts, and on our website.  We are committed to advancing women as leaders and role models in the profession.

A Connection to the Community
NCAWA maintains a commitment to improving the lives of women and children.  Through our members, we support many community service projects and programs to support the community. Among other things, NCAWA provides scholarships to women law students in North Carolina.
