Pam Smith

Pam joined the staff of NOLSW in February 2008 as the mid-Atlantic organizer.  Previously, Pam worked as a staff attorney at the Maryland Legal Aid Bureau (MDLAB).  While she was at MDLAB, Pam served on the healthcare committee and bargaining committee and also processed grievances.

As an attorney with MDLAB, Pam represented clients in federal and state public benefits cases.  Her involvement with NOLSW at MDLAB led her to an interest in labor law.  She left MDLAB in 2006 to take a position as National Negotiator for the National Treasury Employees Union where she negotiated contracts with federal agencies and prosecuted national grievances.

In October, 2012, Pam was appointed to serve as Financial Secretary/Treasurer by the National Executive Board, and was elected to that position in 2013 and 2016. Pam became President in July 2018.
