New to In-House

ACC Charlotte’s New to In-House (NIH) provides a safe place for in-house attorneys to ask questions, share wisdom, and build relationships through mentoring and meaningful events.

All ACC Charlotte members are encouraged to join. In-house attorneys who are experienced (5+ years in-house) and newer (< 5 years in-house), gather to get to know one another, create formal and informal mentoring, facilitate connectivity and deepen in-house relationships.  

NIH’s flagship initiative is a mentoring program which pairs new to in-house attorneys with more seasoned in-house attorneys outside their own organization to help them develop skills, create action plans to reach their short and long-term career goals, receive wisdom from as well as exchange ideas with the more seasoned attorneys, achieve success within an internal legal department, expand networks, and strengthen relationships across ACC legal departments.
