The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) is the world’s largest community of in-house counsel with more than 30,000 members in over 75 countries. The ACC Quebec Chapter is part of the ACC and is proud to serve as an in-house association for attorneys who practice in legal departments of corporations and other private sector organizations in the Province of Quebec, Canada. With over 215 members, we are one of three Canadian ACC Chapters serving the Canadian in-house community, which represents over 1000 members in 450 corporations.
This year, the ACC Quebec Chapter celebrates its 5th Anniversary. As a relatively young organization, we have many accomplishments to be proud of. Over the past 5 years, we offered top-quality CLE programs tailored specifically to the needs and interests of in-house counsel in Quebec in French and in English, organized social and networking events to allow the Quebec in-house community to meet and share ideas and best practices and represented the interests of the Quebec in-house community. These accomplishments would not have been possible if it was not for the determination and dedication of our board members (past and current) and the support of our sponsors.
To highlight our 5th Anniversary, we have many CLE and networking events planned throughout the year. Earlier this year we held our first networking event of the year at the newly opened Grevin Wax Museum in Montreal, which was a huge success. For more information regarding our many interesting CLE programs and our upcoming networking events, we invite you to visit our website.
It’s my privilege to serve as the 2013 president of the Quebec Chapter and to work with this year’s board of directors to continue to offer our members and the Quebec in-house community the high level of services, programs, events and representations they have come to expect from our chapter over the years.
