Announcing the Ilene G. Reid
ACC NCR Corporate Scholar Fund in Honor of
her 20 Years of Leadership and Friendship

As Executive Director of ACC NCR (formerly WMACCA) from 1998 to 2018, Ilene touched the lives, careers, and businesses of numerous attorneys, professionals, legal departments, law firms, and companies.  Since she transitioned to senior director in April, we have received an outpouring of interest in recognizing her impact. The campaign allows all of us to say thank you and to continue her legacy of service, as well as support one of ACC NCR’s most important efforts, its Corporate Scholars Program. 
The ACC NCR Corporate Scholars Program is dedicated to increasing diversity in the in-house community by placing diverse law students in summer internships with member legal departments. Since 2004 and over the course of 15 summers, ACC NCR has placed more than 100 Corporate Scholars in summer internships.
The Ilene G. Reid ACC NCR Corporate Scholars Fund is a component fund of the Greater Washington Community Foundation, a 501(c)3 public charity. To make a contribution by credit card, go to: Checks should be made out to the Greater Washington Community Foundation (note the Ilene Reid ACC NCR Corporate Scholars Fund in the memo line) and may be given to an ACC NCR staff member or mailed to:  Greater Washington Community Foundation 1325 G Street NW, Suite 480, Washington, DC 20005.  The total amount raised in Ilene’s honor will be announced at the ACC NCR Annual Meeting in January 2019.
