Norris Green was recently named executive director of the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners. Green originally joined the ALBME in July 2015 as the associate executive director and was officially named director following the retirement of Larry Dixon in December 2016.
Prior to coming to the ALBME, Green worked for 39 years with the Alabama Legislative Fiscal Office and served as its director for his last four years with the organization.
“Since joining the ALBME, I’ve enjoyed working with our staff members and getting to know Alabama’s physicians who serve as members of the board,” Green said. “We are all working together to shape our state’s health care future. This can be challenging, yet very rewarding work, and I’m excited about continuing to move Alabama forward in our changing health care climate.”
Green has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Auburn University, a Juris Doctor degree from Jones School of Law, and is a member of the Alabama State Bar. During his career, he received recognition by the National Association for Legislative Fiscal Offices for outstanding contributions to the Alabama Legislature as well as recognition of the fiscal office by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities as a model legislative agency.
“The Medical Association is excited to work with Norris and continue our strong relationship with the ALBME,” said Association Executive Director Mark Jackson. “His ability to work with complex issues with his experience of the inner workings of state government will be a tremendous asset to our physicians.”
