Alyssa Levine
2018 President, North Carolina Association of Women Attorneys

I am honored to serve as 2018 President of the North Carolina Association of Women Attorneys. This year, NCAWA proudly celebrates its 40th anniversary and will hold the Annual Conference in Charlotte for the first time (September 27 - 29, 2018).

For NCAWA, I see 2018 as a year of collaboration and dynamic growth. Collaboration between members, collaboration between our seven local chapters and the Board of Directors, collaboration between NCAWA and other bar associations and affinity groups. There is strength in numbers and to promote the purposes of NCAWA across North Carolina -- we need you. I can't do it alone nor can the fifteen dynamic women serving with me on the Board.

Our members play an important role in analyzing and defining women's issues, as well as advocating on behalf of women attorneys and individuals in the community at large. From enhancing your personal and professional network and cultivating referral sources to developing leadership skills and engaging in direct advocacy, NCAWA offers something for everyone. I have no doubt that you will enjoy the many benefits of membership - whether it's your first year or your fortieth.

As women attorneys, we bring a unique perspective to the profession of law. By pooling our experiences and knowledge, the possibilities are endless with respect to how we effectively promote the participation of women in the legal profession and advance the rights and welfare of women under the law. I look forward to working with all of you this year to continue NCAWA's legacy of doing just that.
