Labor and employment attorney Will Oden has been elected to the Board of Governors of the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA), according to a news release.

He was one of seven new members recently announced at the NCBA's 2022 Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem.

Oden will serve a three-year term on the board, which is responsible for leadership and governance for North Carolina's largest voluntary legal organization.

"The NCBA plays a vital role," Oden said in the release. "I am honored to be elected to the Board of Governors and look forward to working with my fellow members to continue the NCBA's mission to 'serve the public and the legal profession by promoting the administration of justice and encouraging the highest standards of integrity, competence, civility, and well-being of all members of the profession.'"

Ward and Smith's co-managing director Devon Williams stated in the release, "Will's election to the Board reflects his dedication to our profession and leadership within our firm. We are proud of his accomplishment and know he will be an excellent addition."

Oden's practice experience encompasses employment and workplace-related counseling and civil litigation in federal and state courts at the trial and appellate levels, according to the release. He regularly represents employers and employees before the U.S. Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the N.C. Department of Labor, the N.C. Industrial Commission, the N.C. Department of Commerce, Division of Employment Security, and federal and state wage and hour divisions, the release stated.
