ACC NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION NEWS
ACC National Capital Region is excited to present the 2018 Corporate Counsel Awards - the top honor in this region for the in-house community. This is the 13th year of these prestigious awards.
Hundreds of ACC NCR members, sponsors, and guests will gather to recognize the accomplishments of outstanding chief legal officers, in-house counsel, and law departments. We will also honor In-House Innovators (departments that have tried something new in the management of their work, their people, their use of external resources, or such) and present Ilene G. Reid with a Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of her 20 years of service and leadership as Executive Director of the chapter.
It's an evening of great networking, renewing old acquaintances and making new ones, and celebrating the contributions that in-house counsel make to our organizations and the community.
