About our Speaker
Whitney von Haam
Executive Director, Wake County Bar Association and Tenth Judicial District Bar
There are nearly 5,500 lawyers in Wake County and if they want to practice law here, they must be a member of the Tenth Judicial Bar. They may also voluntarily join the Wake County Bar Association. Both organizations fall under the leadership of Whitney von Haam.
When she’s not in the midst of lawyers and the law, von Haam is a tireless community volunteer with SAFEchild, a child abuse prevention agency, as well as a Girl Scout troop leader for her daughters. She is also a past president of the Junior League of Raleigh.
“My parents raised me to understand that service to the community is essential, so it has always been a part of my life,” von Haam says. It’s never been a question to me of if I should serve, but instead where I should serve. And I make my kids part of the service, too.”
Von Haam was one of the co-chairs of the 2017 Governor’s Inaugural Ball presented by the Junior League. With a winter storm on the way, her committee made the decision to move the event a day ahead with just seven hours’ lead time.
“We had painstakingly gone over every detail of our planned event and within a few hours it was scrapped and a new plan was in place. What I witnessed was a group of professional, committed volunteers doing what needed to be done. I have never been more proud to be a part of this women’s organization.”
