Special message from the president
I am pleased to report that we have made available for online viewing our signature, standing room only Half Day Event a few months ago, Evolution of In-House Counsel: Staying Current in the Tides of Change.
Fred Krebs, our former longstanding ACC President, kicked off the event with an excellent presentation on "Skill Sets for the GC of the Future." Next, Stephen Roth, Vice President and General Counsel of Jewelry Television, reprised his well-received event at the ACC Annual Meeting in New Orleans, "Why Smart Lawyers Fail - Increasing Your Emotional Intelligence and Your Impact." To conclude the event, Scott Rogers, Founder and Director of the Institute for Mindfulness Studies and the University of Miami School of Law's Mindfulness in Law Program, spoke about "Mindfulness in Law: The Cultivation of Focus, Concentration, and the Reduction of Stress."
The event was featured in the June edition of the Metropolitan Corporate Counsel. Scott Rogers was subsequently highlighted on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, which reported that Professor Rogers' law school courses are all wait listed and that the legal field is joining the "mind-sharpening" mindfulness movement championed by corporations ranging from Google to General Mills.
I strongly encourage you to view this event. Please feel free to forward the link: https://goo.gl/9cyv1e to people who are not members of the ACC, as the videos are available for general viewing.
Jeff Stern, President ACC Greater New York
