Chapter Dues

NCAWA is a statewide organization that also has nine local Chapters throughout the state of North Carolina. Each local Chapter has its own governing board and bylaws, but chapters are a part of the statewide organization. Chapter members must be members of NCAWA to vote and participate fully in chapter activities. Dues, if any, are set by the chapter leadership. At this time, there is no additional cost to be a member of any local NCAWA Chapter, except Charlotte Women's Bar (CWB), Piedmont Triad Women Attorneys (PTWA), and Wake Women Attorneys (WWA). CWB, PTWA, and WWA require an additional $25 fee. Please be sure to indicate which Chapter that you would like to join, if any, on the application below.
