WBA Foundation Champion Award

We are presenting our 2024 WBA Foundation Champion Award, which recognizes a devoted Foundation champion, to Nancy Long. Nancy’s unflagging support of the WBA Foundation began when she served as Executive Director of the Women’s Bar Association and the WBA Foundation from 2004-2007. She was a Director on the Foundation Board in the 2013-2014 Bar year and then served as President for two terms, 2014 - 2016. She served as Immediate Past President on the Board from 2016-2018. She was also President of the Women’s Bar Association from 1996-1997. During her time as President of the Foundation, Nancy focused on strengthening the relationship between the Association and the Foundation. The strategic vision from these efforts remains today and Nancy continues to personally take steps to ensure that the two organizations support each other. Nancy is a consistent presence at and fundraiser for Foundation events. Her annual donation of a home-cooked Italian meal is a popular item at the Wine Tasting & Silent Auction.
