South Florida Chapter

ACC South Florida is the leading source of information and networking opportunities for in-house counsel in the South Florida area.  ACC South Florida specifically serves in-house counsel in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties, and currently has approximately over 500 members.  In addition to the programming offered to ACC South Florida members at the local level, ACC provides its membership with invaluable resources.
 
At the local level, ACC South Florida hosts social events and community service events throughout the year, which provide members not only the chance to network with in-house counsel peers, but also the opportunity to give back to the South Florida community. Additionally, ACC South Florida hosts numerous CLE programs each year to provide members with a broad range of information important to in-house counsel and to assist members with the satisfaction of their CLE requirements.

What the Tour de Broward Supports
Funds from previous years have supported the hospital’s Heart Institute, which provides children with a complete continuum of care from diagnosis to repair of congenital defects and other cardiac dysfunctions. It houses the Pediatric Heart Transplant Program, one of only two of its kind in South Florida. Funds have also supported programs for the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, helping to improve the lives of many oncology patients and families. However, the need is greater this year because funds raised will help support programs throughout Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, as it aims to grow in the community and continue to expand services.
Tour de Broward 2018 will feature a variety of events for adults, kids, physically challenged athletes and wounded warriors alike. These events include a 3K Walk & 5K Timed Run; Cycling challenges - 50K and 100K; The Power of Play Kids Zone.
