Brown to give presentation to N.C. Society for Certified Public Managers

RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law third-year student Anitra Brown will deliver a presentation during the North Carolina Society of Certified Public Managers’ (NCSCPM) fall conference on Tuesday, Oct. 8. The presentation, “Managing New Legislation,” will detail specific state legislation and its impacts on state managers and their decision making moving forward. Brown will touch on the grievance policy, changes to employee status, and equal employment opportunity plans and policies throughout her talk.

Brown gained familiarity with the NCSCPM this summer while serving as an intern for the North Carolina Office of State Personnel (NCOSP), working under the direction of NCSCPM President Linda Jefferson. While at NCOSP, Brown worked with the Equal Employment Opportunity, Diversity, and Inclusion division, where she produced a research project on employment trends titled “African-American Female Participation in North Carolina State Government.” Brown, who also made policy recommendations while with the NCOSP, earned her presenting role at the NCSCPM conference in large part due to her work for the state over the past summer.

“I am very excited about this opportunity,” said Brown. “I look forward to sharing my research on these subjects, and I hope that it will serve as a beneficial presentation for the members of the organization.”

Brown offered her fellow Campbell Law classmates and faculty/staff members a preview of her research with a mock presentation at the law school on Monday, Oct. 7.

A native of San Diego, Calif., Brown holds a B.A. in French and a master’s in public administration with a concentration in public management from Grambling State University. Brown is the director of the Campbell Law Pro Bono Council. She has previously served as the vice president of the Black Law Students Association and a contributor and managing editor of the Southern Journal of Law and Policy.

Brown is a recipient of the Robert A. Dyer Scholarship, the Dupree, Franklin T. & Elizabeth Wells Sr. Memorial Scholarship, the N.C. Association of Women Attorneys Scholarship, and the Jane Perkinson Memorial BAR-BRI Scholarship.  Aside from the NCOSP, she has also interned with Magistrate Judge Joe Webster of the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.
