ACC National Capital Region
I am honored to lead our ACC National Capital Region chapter this year. With approximately 2,500 members across Virginia, D.C., and suburban Maryland, we are a strong and vital organization focused on being your go-to professional resource. Over 50 dedicated volunteer leaders, a strong group of sponsors, and our great staff make this all possible.
Each year, we provide our members with over 80 CLE opportunities on a broad array of substantive topics. These programs are shaped by our volunteer leaders specifically for you as in-house attorneys. I have always been impressed with the quality and diversity of our programming. And now with our increased focus on interactivity, we provide you with more opportunities to learn by doing -- and from each other.
In everything we do, we build in the opportunity for you to get to know your colleagues - whether during lunch at a CLE program, sharing ideas in an interactive program, meeting each other a micro-networking lunch, doing good through pro bono and community service, or attending happy hours and other social events. Having a strong professional network that you can call on with a difficult question helps you do your job better, and is very important if a job change is on the horizon.
All of the chapter's work is focused on enriching your experience as members, so we are always open to feedback on our current services and how we can better serve you. Feel free to reach out to me, any of our chapter leaders, or our great staff if you have ideas or would like to get involved.
