He will serve in this leadership role for two years to represent Brunswick, Columbus, New Hanover and Pender counties.
“My work as a district director will help guide policy decisions and the work of NCACC,” said Chairman Barfield. “I have been able to help shape NCACC’s legislative agenda for this year, keeping the best interest of our county and region at the forefront, and I am grateful to have this opportunity to serve.”
