On Thursday, January 17, 2014, former NAFUSA president and lifetime NAFUSA member Margaret Person Currin was elected to serve as Chairman of the North Carolina Rules Review Commission by a vote of the members of the Commission. She was first appointed by the North Carolina Senate to membership on the Commission in 2011, was reappointed in 2013, and has served as its First Vice Chairman since her initial appointment.
The Rules Review Commission, an executive agency created by the North Carolina General Assembly in 1986, is the executive agency charged with reviewing and approving rules adopted by state agencies. The RRC consists of ten commissioners appointed by the North Carolina General Assembly, five on the recommendation of the President Pro Tempore, and five on the recommendation of the Speaker of the House.
Currin is on the faculty at Campbell University School of Law in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she has served in various administrative and faculty positions since 1981—taking time out for her service as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina from 1988-1993.
