NC native takes helm of National Bar Association (access required)

The country’s oldest organization for minority lawyers has tapped a North Carolina native to serve as its first female executive director. Demetris W. Cheatham, formerly the National Bar Association’s interim executive director, has taken the helm at the 87-year-old group. Cheatham, who grew up in Tarboro, said her first order of business is to firm up the NBA’s relationships with government and political leaders. For more than 30 years, the face of the organization was its longtime executive director John Crump. The organization has been in a transitional mode since he retired in 2009, Cheatham said.
