Connect With the YLD

By Cabell Clay

As the summer heat ramps up, so does the new NCBA YLD Bar Year.  I am excited to chair the Young Lawyers Division for the 2019-20 Bar Year and want to personally invite you to connect with the YLD this year in two easy ways.

1. Connect with the YLD on SLACK.

SLACK  is a collaborative online workspace that encourages our members to stay connected without clogging inboxes with email.  It’s a great way to share ideas, ask questions, and learn what the YLD has going on.  If you want to learn more about Slack generally, check out these FAQ’s.   I encourage all YLD members to connect with the YLD on SLACK.  To register, please click HERE to submit your name and your email.  Shortly after you complete the form, you will receive an invitation to formally join the #YLD Channel.

2. Join a Committee!

The heart of the YLD is our committees.  With 14 committees covering a variety of projects, focuses, and interests, we have something for everyone.

Interested in the health and well-being of the YLD? Join the Wellness Committee.

Want to help raise food and funds for our hungry North Carolina neighbors? The Legal Feeding Frenzy Committee is for you.

Devoted to furthering diversity and inclusion among our profession?  Check out the Legal LINK or the Diversity & Inclusion Committees.

Enjoy planning events and bringing folks together? The Member Outreach or Law Student Outreach Committees are calling you.

These Committees are the perfect way to connect with other young lawyers from across the state, connect with opportunities to better yourself, and connect with opportunities to better our profession and communities.

I look forward to connecting with you during the 2019-20 Bar Year.  If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions this year, don’t hesitate to reach out to me – you can email me at — or, better yet, send me a message on SLACK!
