The N.C. Association of Educators has hired Ann McColl to be its first in-house lawyer.
In addition to legal work, she'll work on policy and lobbying.
McColl moves to NCAE from her job as lobbyist for the State Board of Education, where she's been for about two years.
"Ann brings a wealth of experience, talent, and commitment to our Association's work," said NCAE President Rodney Ellis. "Whether the issue is employment, working conditions, or education reform, Ann believes that educators deserve a strong voice. NCAE is stronger with Ann on our team."
