The Chicago Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel-America has announced that it has been selected to present the Best of Chapter programs at the 2004 Annual Meeting taking place October 25-27 at the Sheraton Chicago.
This honor is afforded annually to the chapter that submits the highest quality program presented by in-house counsel at a local level. The winning program, Issues in Mediation & Arbitration for Neutrals & Corporate Counsel, was originally offered by the Chicago Chapter in October 2003 and featured a three-member panel of in-house counsel and former judges.
This program was one of more than 20 educational events and social programs the Chapter typically offers its members throughout the year.
Since the Best of Chapter program contest began in 2000, ACC has hosted the competition among its 43 chapters to spotlight quality in-house-focused programming at the chapter level. Qualified entries must meet certain criteria including offering a subject matter that is highly relevant to the in-house community and an expert panel featuring in-house counsel or other business leaders, and the program must have been held in the previous calendar year.
