Christian Conway, a second-year UW Law School student, has been elected treasurer of the National Black Law Students Association.
NBLSA is a membership organization that represents the interests of nearly 6,000 law students at over 200 law schools throughout the United States and six other countries.
Some of Conway’s duties as treasurer include managing the organization’s funds, designing and implementing financial policy, and developing the national budget for the board’s approval. She will also oversee NBLSA’s financial team, which includes newly appointed financial secretary Victoria Crosby, a first-year UW Law student.
Conway says she hopes to bring more transparency and accountability to the role, as well as gaining an expert understanding of federal tax-exempt nonprofit operations.
In addition to Conway’s and Crosby’s national posts, two UW Law students were elected to the regional Black Law Students Association board: Reginald Thedford, a second-year student, is the Midwest attorney general, and Michele Etienne, a first-year student, has been elected Midwest treasurer.
