Brian Lewis, a lobbyist and spokesman for the N.C. Association of Educators, is leaving the organization for his own lobbying firm, New Frame.
Lewis plans to incorporate video and social media tools into work for small businesses and social justice organizations. He produces the Educator Voices video series for NCAE.
Lewis said he expects to continue walking the halls of the Legislative Building. "I'll be down there talking loudly on important issues," he said.
Lewis leaves NCAE on Feb. 1. The organization is also searching for a new executive director.
