Asheville-Buncombe Community Land Trust

Quala Brown

Position: Board Member

I am delighted to have worked 24 years with the US Government. In 1992, I served in the United States Air Force. Changing gears later into my current role as a Revenue Officer in 2014. I hold a Masters of Science in Business Management from Troy University. My collective experiences have been used as a platform to influence and connect others. I am excited about the volunteer work I have done with organizations such as the Association for the Improvement of Minorities at the IRS (AIM-IRS) Board Member; National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA) General Member and CoThinkk – A Giving Circle and local grassroots organization. One of my most recent volunteer roles has been serving as a general board member with Asheville-Buncombe Community Land Trust (ABCLT) and Chair of the Community Relations committee. I am grateful for this opportunity to pay it forward by serving our local communities.
