Local Advisory Council (LAC)
LANC-Winston-Salem Office

The LANC-Winston-Salem Office's Local Advisory Council (LAC) is comprised of volunteers who live in the communities served by the LANC-Winston-Salem Office and who are dedicated to ensuring equal access to justice. The LAC advises LANC about local client needs and recommends how limited resources can best address those needs. The LAC members are also charged to conduct local fund raising activities and to recommend how such funds could be used to the benefit of the LANC-Winston-Salem Office and its service area.
