Updates From ACC Committees

Message from the Chair

Dear ACC Sports and Entertainment Committee Members:

It was great seeing so many people in Boston at the 2015 ACC Annual Meeting. As always, the programs were informative and the social events were incredible. I left Boston tired physically, but energized about our leadership team!

In just 5 years, we have grown from a small meeting room of 25 people founding an interest group to a vibrant, active committee with over 1,100 members. The growth of the past few years has been rapid, and the momentum continues to build.

In the past year, we became the first ACC Committee to establish a Twitter presence (@ACCSELC), co-sponsored numerous local events, and provided members with many opportunities to interact and learn. We have even more planned in the next 12.

The key to our success and growth is active members. While the ACC staff goes a long way to execute, we need leaders to generate ideas on timely programs and topics and assist with driving us to the next level. Leadership is an incredible way to network with other active attorneys, and give back to the profession. Our committee has numerous leadership opportunities, and I invite you to get involved by emailing me our anyone else in our leadership!

Thank you for being a part of our success!
