Hope Derby Carmichael has been appointed to the North Carolina Bar Association’s Community Associations Committee, an ad hoc committee of the NCBA’s Real Property Section. The Community Associations Committee meets regularly to discuss issues related to condominiums and community associations which impact the legal jurisprudence or statutory framework in North Carolina. The Community Associations Committee assists with education efforts for lawyers and their clients on related issues and also makes recommendations to the Bar Association regarding the support of proposed legislation before the General Assembly. Most recently, the Committee has offered itself as a resource to the General Assembly’s House Select Committee on Homeowners Associations which is studying issues arising out of the N.C. Condominium Act and Planned Community Act.
