A Message From the President
Anne Bancroft - Associate General Counsel, Exelon Business Services Company
Welcome to 2018! We are very excited about what this year holds for our membership.
In the face of tax reform, immigration changes, pay equity, cybersecurity, #metoo, and other current legislative and cultural challenges, companies are relying on their in-house advisors to navigate this sea of change. So far in 2018 we have hosted relevant, well-attended CLE Institutes covering topics including transactions, executive compensation, litigation, and other issues daily impacting in-house counsel. It is our goal to continue to present relevant and informative programming presented by expert attorneys that will provide our members with valuable content and the opportunity to interact with peers facing similar challenges.
In addition, our newly-formed "Meet Your Counterparts" Committee has been actively planning this year’s MYCs at some of the city’s most exciting and popular venues, including our most recent event at Yards Brewing Company. We will be welcoming current and prospective members to our "Wine vs. Beer Challenge" at The Restaurant School on March 28th. Please invite any of your in-house colleagues who are interested in learning more about ACC Greater Philadelphia and the advantages of being a Chapter member.
And, we are looking ahead to better weather and our flagship CLE event – the "In-House Counsel Conference" on April 25th at the Convention Center. Our new location allows us to offer more sessions with more space on a wide-range of current topics. We also are looking forward to hosting our "Spring Fling" at the Philadelphia Free Library on May 17th.
We had unprecedented interest from sponsors this year and we greatly appreciate their support of our continued programming and new initiatives. I would also like to thank our hard-working Board and Committee Chairs and Chapter Administrators who are responsible for all of the planning that makes our packed calendar possible. Most importantly, thank you to our members for your support and feedback. We welcome any suggestions on how we can improve programming and events to make our Chapter as relevant to you as possible.
