ACC celebrates 30 years of service to 30,000 members worldwide

ACC is excited to celebrate two milestones - 30 years of serving the in-house community and reaching 30,000 members worldwide. From its start 30 years ago as a small group of 3,000 in-house counsel in the United States, ACC has evolved into a global association with more than 30,000 members in over 75 countries. And, we’re continuing to innovate and change to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse membership.

ACC Sends Condolences in Wake of Paris Tragedy

On behalf of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), board of directors, staff and entire ACC community, our heartfelt sympathies go out to the victims and families of the tragic events in Paris.

Paris is the home of many of our chapter leaders, members, country representatives, sponsors and the in-house community at large. We share in the grief and sadness of those that have lost loved ones or suffered physically or emotionally.

At this time we are not aware of anyone from the ACC network of families and friends that have been injured or lost. Our hearts go out to our colleagues and friends and family of loved ones in Paris. We pray for your safety and security.

– Veta T. Richardson, ACC President & CEO Continue
