President’s Message

I am honored to serve as the President of the Buncombe County Bar for the upcoming year.

Since March of 2020, things have been uncertain and the Bar has had to adapt to maintain safety while also properly serving our members. Sonya Rikhye and Anne Salter, my predecessors, did a magnificent job guiding our members through many new and unprecedented issues caused by COVID-19. Now, it is my turn as President to continue the job of leading the Bar through what we can only hope is the end of the pandemic.

We are cautiously beginning to meet in person and the members of the Executive Committee are working diligently to find the most appropriate place and time for monthly, in person, meetings and social events. Additionally, the CLE Committee and the Wellness Committee of the Buncombe County Bar will continue to strive to offer free or low cost CLE programming and to provide wellness resources for all members.

I think what makes the Buncombe County Bar so special is the collegiality members have with one another. I am sincerely excited to serve as President for a group of people that I genuinely enjoy being around. 

Please feel free to contact me or our dedicated bar administrator Lisa-Gaye Hall with any questions or concerns that you may have. I look forward to seeing you this year.


Carter B. Webb
2021-2022 President, Buncombe County Bar
