Tennessee Chapter

President's Message

Thank you for engaging with the Tennessee Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC-Tennessee). Our guiding principle is to grow membership, services and benefits by realizing our Vision of being the premier association for in-house counsel in Tennessee for professional development, networking and community involvement by achieving our Mission of improving the quality of in-house practice and enhancing professional life through education, mentorship, and fostering relationships for in house counsel.

Our Chapter

We are a 501(c)(6) non-profit with a diverse membership of over 500  members ranging from private to public, litigation to transactions, and education to healthcare. We operate as a single statewide organization. ACC-Tennessee is broken out into 3 "Grand Divisions" (East, Middle and West) consistent with Tennessee courts, political subdivisions and the State Bar. Our logo is the ACC National logo with the 3 Grand Divisions represented by the3 stars of the Tennessee state flag inside an outline of the state. For reasons of efficiency and convenience, we are administrated out of Nashville by our Chapter Administrator, Melanie Gober Grand.

Our Leaders are Our Members

ACC - Tennessee seeks to make a difference in the lives of in-house counsel through programming, self-improvement and community service opportunities that are planned and made according to our informal motto - - - "by in-house, for i-house." The Chapter is constituted by a volunteer team of directors, officers, and committee personnel with proportionate representation from the 3 Grand Divisions. The team meets at least monthly by telephone and annually at a board meeting. The officer team includes the President, President-elect, Immediate Past President, 3 Divisional Vice-Presidents, a Secretary and a Treasurer.

Whether tried and true or something new, you are invited to get involved with ACC - Tennessee.
