WELCOME TO THE GARDEN STATE ~ A NOTE FROM OUR CHAPTER PRESIDENT
Dear Members, Sponsors and Colleagues,
As I enter my second year as President of the ACCNJ, I notice that our Chapter, and the ACC at large, has never been more relevant and important for those of us practicing in house in New Jersey and across the nation and world. I've come to think of the ACC network as one very large, multi-national, best in class in house legal team. A team that provides abundant opportunities to learn, teach, mentor, and share top quality legal advice.A team that enables us to advocate, brainstorm, give back to our communities, meet, network and socialize with friends and colleagues all over the country and world. (Yes - - ACC has chapters in 85 countries outside of the U.S!)
The changes around us—whether social, political, technological, scientific, economic or otherwise—require that we help our clients navigate through new and increasingly complex legal landscapes, which profoundly impact the companies for which we work, our communities, and the legal profession at large.In many instances, we are responsible to help shape those new legal landscapes. Our terrific ACC community of professionals, including all our sponsors, is a network on which I have become increasingly reliant when facing these new challenges and opportunities.
I'm proud of our Chapter's successes over the last year, particularly in providing more opportunities for meaningful engagement of our members and sponsors, introducing innovative programming formats and topics, and providing professional development and outreach opportunities. In the year ahead, we will continue these initiatives, as well as adding programming designed for the different stages of your career, virtual programming, and events held in collaboration with other chapters in the tri-state area and beyond.
Thank you members for your continued participation and enthusiasm in our professional community, and sponsors for your incredible support and advice.Finally, I'd like to give a special shout-out of appreciation to our Chapter Board of Directors and to Leslie Wolfson, our Executive Director, for their tireless work on behalf of the ACCNJ, and to the ACC organization for all the resources, guidance and support they provide each and every day.Thank you all!
Wishing you a good and successful 2019, and looking forward to seeing you soon.
