Members of the Committees carry out responsibilities as delegated by the Executive Board. General members are encouraged to volunteer to assist in communities and volunteer at events. Send an email to email@example.com if you are interested in volunteering with a committee.
The Communications Committee adds value to a member’s relationship with CCLA by providing information and opportunities to expand professional knowledge and growth. The Communications Committee manages all communications, public relations functions, and informational social media requirements CCLA to ensure two-way communication channels are functioning. Responsibilities include the CCLA Newsletters, updating Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and marketing and promotional materials, both print and electronic.
The Events Committee is made up of the Event Chair, Sub-Committee Chairs, and interested CCLA members. The Events Committee is responsible for: planning, scheduling, and organizing various CCLA events, including but not limited to the annual CCLA Christmas Gala, the Summer Soiree Happy Hours, and other social gatherings. Responsibilities include communicating with representatives at hotels, restaurants, and other venues; obtaining quotes and securing DJs, caterers, photographers, and other vendors; decorating; securing any additional volunteers; and working alongside our Communications Committee to promote CCLA events.
The Political Action Committee believes that it is incumbent upon African-American attorneys, as leaders in their communities, to participate in the political process by (1) supporting elected officials and candidates, (2) engaging with and educating the public, (3) raising political awareness and participation, (4) acquiring information to become thoughtful voters, and (5) running for elected offices. The CCLA-PAC seeks to create a platform and offer opportunities to effectuate these goals. The CCLA-PAC is non-partisan and does not endorse individual candidates.
The Public Service Committee supports CCLA’s mission by offering opportunities that allow members to experience the worth of helping others. We do this by strengthening community partnerships and developing outreach activities that expose underprivileged populations to positive influences through the legal profession.
The Scholarship/Fundraising Committee plays a very vital role in the Capital City Law Association (CCLA). Every year CCLA awards multiple scholarships to law students in the Triangle area to assist with their law school expenses. The role of the Scholarship/Fundraising committee is to raise funds for the scholarships that are awarded annually at our scholarship dinner. CCLA’s Annual Scholarship Dinner is a distinguished event that is held to honor those students awarded with the scholarships. Funds are generated by donations and specifically, CCLA’s Annual Christmas Scholarship Gala. The committee is responsible for coordinating the scholarship dinner as well as selecting the scholarship recipients.
