The Results Are In! 2017 Board Elections

After tallying votes from members from across the state, we are happy to announce the results of our 2017 elections for the ACLU of North Carolina’s Board of Directors.

Two existing board members – Mitchell Price and Beth Klein – were re-elected to new terms, while Joseph Blocher, Jimmy Creech, Anne Gordon, and Lori Messinger were each elected to serve three-year terms, and Anne-Maria B. Makhulu and Patti Digh were elected to fill open seats for a two-year-term.

The ACLU-NC and its Legal Foundation are governed by all-volunteer Boards of Directors, composed of individuals from many different parts of the state and who work in a variety of professions.
