Chair's Message:

At times in my job as in-house counsel, I find myself working on something and thinking that there must be someone who has had the same issue come up and made a 50-state survey, a tip sheet, or something that could help me. At the same time, I know there’s probably not an easy answer that will pop up using the legal research tools they taught us to use in law school. That’s when I turn to Google, ACC, or a practice-area-specific resource in the hope I’ll find an especially helpful resource. One goal of the New to In-House Committee is to have commonly sought resources available when you search the ACC website. Although it can be beneficial to build these resources yourself, it’s often hard to do while moving at the speed of your business. We need your help to develop these resources. If you have an idea or you see a resource that would be useful were it not woefully out of date, we would love to have you work with the Communications or Programs subcommittee to develop or update a resource. You don’t need to do this alone and we can help you find one or more individuals who want to help. For example, our Communications subcommittee is currently working on an article for the ACC Docket about 20 Things All NTIH Should Know, and they would love your input on what should be included. Please reach out to us: we’re here to make ACC more responsive to the needs of new in-house counsel. You can find all our contact information at http://www.acc.com/committees/ntic/leadership.cfm.

Docket Article

We want to hear from you!

This year, we have set the goal of submitting written content to the ACC Docket (the award winning publication for in-house counsel) the title of which is “The Top Twenty Things All New To In House Should Know”.

Please submit some things that you have learned during your early years in-house that you think would be valuable to share with others by sending your suggestions and ideas to Sara at Sara.Sweeney@fmglobal.com or Lindsey at lindseyshannon.lee@lge.com. Please be sure to use the subject line “ACC Docket Ideas”.
