Dear ACC Northeast Chapter Members and Friends,

As we hit the ground running in 2024, we feel a deep appreciation and gratitude for you, our members. Our ACC Northeast Chapter Board and Committees are here to serve you and your needs, and we are pleased to report that the health of our Chapter is strong. 2023 was a stellar year for us, a year in which our total membership grew 9%, to reach 1,442 members across our Chapter. Our recruitment efforts yielded a 31% increase in new memberships, and our member retention increased by 4% year over year, respectively. We’re proud of these results, and we recognize the role that each of you played in communicating the value that the ACC Northeast Chapter creates for you and your career, to friends and colleagues.

As we reflect on 2023, here are some highlights of the influence our membership has on the direction of our Chapter. In January we conducted our annual membership survey, and in February and March we held targeted member listening sessions. One of the top career priorities shared with us was a desire for more professional development and networking opportunities. We channeled this feedback into the creation of the Peer Connect Leadership Development series, which aided in the professional development of 33 members. In December, we hosted “The Modern In-House Practice: Navigating Today’s Business Landscape” alongside Mintz, which emphasized peer to peer learning. These are real ways in which your feedback guided the direction of our programing.

It is once again time to share your perspective with us. Please provide us your feedback for our annual membership survey, by Monday, January 22, 2024, and make an impact on our plans for 2024.

Thank you for your contributions to our vibrant community – we look forward to seeing you in 2024!


James Coughlin

President, ACC Northeast Chapter
