NCACCT Executive Board Unanimously Names Julie Woodson

New President/CEO of the NC Association of Community Trustees


The NCACCT Executive Board voted unanimously Wednesday, November 15, 2017 to name Julie Woodson as the new President/CEO of the NC Association of Community College Trustees (NCACCT). She succeeds Dr. Donny Hunter who retired from the association October 31 after 12 years of service.

Woodson has worked with the NCACCT since 2013, having served as Director of Communications and Special Projects and then as Executive Vice President for the last three years.  Previously, she worked with four other statewide membership associations, including the NC Association of Realtors, the NC Pork Council, NC Citizens for Business and Industry (now the NC Chamber) and the NC Association of School Administrators.   She is a graduate of The School of Journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“Julie has 20 years of experience working with statewide associations in the areas of legislative advocacy and communications,” said Chairman Randy Vinson.  “With that background, along with the time she has already spent with NCACCT, we believe Julie will provide a seamless transition to ensure that our association continues to be a strong voice for community college trustees across North Carolina.”
