The North Carolina Bar Association is a voluntary statewide organization composed of more than 20,000 lawyers, judges, paralegals and law students. The NCBA was founded 1899 and is based at the N.C. Bar Center, located at 8000 Weston Parkway in Cary. Volunteer service and leadership permeates virtually every aspect of the organization, from four divisions devoted to young lawyers, senior lawyers, paralegals and law students, to 31 practice specialty sections, to the various committees, commissions and task forces of the NCBA.
Leadership is provided by the NCBA Board of Governors under the direction of a president who is elected to a one-year term. Individuals comprising membership in the Board of Governors also serve on the Board of Directors for the NCBA’s closely held foundation, the North Carolina Bar Foundation (NCBF). The NCBA is a 501(c)(6) trade organization; the NCBF is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. The North Carolina Bar Foundation was established in 1960. Jason Hensley serves as executive director of the NCBA and the NCBF.
