This committee was developed to meet the needs of attorneys who are in transition, and those who seek to develop the right skills to bring their career to a higher level.  Programs focus on topics such as leadership, finance and accounting skills, presentation and  communications, panels of General Counsel talking about their corporate climb, and other subjects of interest to our members.

On the chapter website, we will be posting information and delivering programs, panels, and networking events on a wide range of topics, including: 

  • Presentation and communication skills
  • Keys to in-house success
  • Long-term career planning
  • Managing job transitions
  • Dealing with difficult people
  • Finance and accounting issues

We welcome your thoughts and help.
