Dear ACC Greater Philadelphia Members and Friends:


As the newly elected President of the ACC Greater Philadelphia Chapter, now in its 41st year, it is an honor and a privilege to serve our 1800+ in-house counsel members. I follow in the footsteps of many outstanding Chapter Presidents who have served before me.  In particular, I’d like to thank Lisa Fleischer, our outgoing President, for her commitment, enthusiasm, and guidance in 2023 and for her many years of leadership with the Chapter.  Among her many accomplishments, Lisa was instrumental in incorporating health and wellness into many of our programs, oversaw the growth of the Chapter’s DEIB initiatives, and ensured the long-term success of our Chapter by leading the Chapter Administrator’s succession plan. Lisa will continue to serve the Chapter as Immediate Past President, attending Board and Officer meetings and serving as Executive Chair of our DEIB Committee.  


In 2024, we welcome a new Diamond sponsor, Fisher Phillips!  Many thanks to Cozen O’Connor for being our Diamond sponsor for many years and they will continue as an Emerald sponsor, along with our other Emerald sponsor, Dechert LLP. Because of the support of our loyal and dedicated sponsors, we have a full calendar of programming, all at no cost to our members.  Please help us to continue to maintain these strong relationships with our sponsors by telling them if you’ve enjoyed a program that they presented, letting them know that you appreciate their support, and consider engaging them when searching for outside counsel or a service provider. 


This year we have over 50 standalone programs planned, ranging from educational opportunities (including our flagship In-House Counsel Conference, practice area institutes, and webinars) to non-educational events (Meet Your Counterparts, sporting events, and other networking opportunities).  Our dedicated Officer leadership team is ready to lead the Chapter and support our members.  We are fortunate to be supported by a dedicated and talented Board of Directors, group of Practice Area Network/Committee volunteer leaders and our Chapter Administrator.  It is with this support that our Chapter continues to be one of the premier chapters of ACC. 


Please mark your calendars for our signature events in 2024 (a link to our full calendar is here): 

•    GC/CLO Summit on March 14th

•    In-House Counsel Conference on April 18th

•    Women’s Summit on May 15th

•    Annual Family Fun Night and Softball Game on July 31st

•    Golf & Tennis Outing on September 16th

•    Fall Gala on November 7th 

•    Diversity Summit on December 5th 


In 2024, the Chapter will continue to grow our relationship with Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers of Pennsylvania, Inc.  Their Lawyers Assistance Program was established in 1988 to provide caring peer assistance to save the lives and restore the health and professional competence of lawyers and judges, members of their extended families, and law students who are at risk as a result of alcohol and drug use, gambling, depression or other serious mental illness.  They carry out this mission through a combination of confidential helpline services, volunteer support and education. All services are free and non-obligatory. Their confidential helpline number is 1-888-999-1941. 


Be sure to follow the ACC Greater Philadelphia Chapter on LinkedIn! It’s a great way to engage with the Chapter and stay up to date on our programming. And please like, share, and interact with the Chapter’s posts!


Finally, if you have any ideas on ways to improve our programming or would like to get more involved, you can always reach me directly at or 215.383.0490. I look forward to seeing all of you at future Chapter events!


Very truly yours,

Joe Nullmeyer
