A Message From the President
Anne Bancroft - Associate General Counsel, Exelon Business Services Company
Like the weather, our Chapter has been heating up! I’d like to start by thanking our members,
sponsors, practice committee chairs, speakers, and planning committee for a
successful In House Counsel Conference
on April 25. We offered the most CLE
opportunities and had the largest attendance yet at our new venue – the PA Convention
Center. We appreciate all of the
feedback, and are pleased that our members enjoyed the programming, networking
opportunities, app, and new location. We
also will continue to incorporate feedback into our planning for 2019. A special thanks to Pete Prinsen, our
President-Elect, Chris Stewart and Joanne Ray, Chapter Administrators, and Dan
Slawe, Treasurer, for their work on this event.
We also had a beautiful evening on the rooftop of the Free
Library for our annual Spring Fling.
The views, food, and music were
spectacular! Thank you to those of you
who attended and to our sponsors and planning committee for hosting this
In May, we appreciated the opportunity to partner with ACC
New Jersey for their CLE in Princeton. We
plan to explore future opportunities to partner with NJ and other chapters in
I would also like to welcome the interns and corporate
participants to the Diversity Summer
Corporate Internship Program, chaired by Sadeq Khan and Kim Jessum. This summer interns from area law schools are
placed in 13 in-house law departments where they will have invaluable hands-on
legal experience and networking opportunities. We thank the corporate hosts and Philadelphia Bar Foundation for their
strong support of this program. Our
interns are invited to all of our Chapter events this summer, so please
introduce yourself and welcome them to the program!
Finally, a few of our Chapter Officers had the opportunity
to attend the ACC Global Leadership Development Institute in May. We took away some great ideas for future
Chapter programming that we plan to incorporate next year. We received very positive feedback and much
interest from attendees regarding our events.
We have many CLE and networking events planned this summer. I would like to highlight the event that
especially honors you – our members. Our
annual Member Appreciation Night and
Charity Softball Game is our recognition of members and sponsors for your
support throughout the year. So please
bring your families and join us for an evening of softball, family games, and
delicious ballpark food at the Blue Rocks
Ball Park in Wilmington, DE on July
We hope to see you at an upcoming CLE, Meet Your
Counterparts, and Women’s Networking Event this summer. If you are attending the ACC Global Corporate Counsel University on June 20-22, please join
our Chapter at a morning fitness event and after-hours party on June 21 at City Tap House (registration required).
Thank you for your continued support. We welcome your feedback!
ACC Greater Philadelphia President, 2018
