Member Practice Groups in the Greater NY Chapter are member-driven. The current Groups exist because a sufficient number of members expressed interest in the subject and some were willing to take on leadership roles. The Chapter provides extensive support for the Groups but to a large extent each Group operates in the way they feel works best for them. Two common features among all groups are:

  • Providing practical networking (e.g. sharing best practices etc) among similarly situated in-house counsel
  • Assisting the Chapter in presenting CLE about the Group’s area of expertise. 

If you see a particular Group appeals to you, contact the Group’s leader(s) as noted. If your area of interest does not currently have a Member Practice Group, email Executive Director Bonnie Dean or call her at 347-758-5336 to discuss possibilities.

There is a great deal of flexibility (keeping in mind, of course, the current financial crisis) as to what Groups can do and how they do it. In fact, once formally launched about all the Groups cannot do without involving chapter leadership is make commitments with third parties or issue policy statements.
