The South Florida Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel’s Presents its Ambassadors Program

The South Florida Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACCA-SFL) is pleased to announce the launch of its Ambassadors Program for South Florida law students. Participating law students, or “ACCA-SFL Ambassadors”, will volunteer at the organization’s various events during the year. This will provide the students with a unique networking and educational opportunity. With access to ACC-SFL’s in house counsel membership and its law firm sponsors, students will be able to build relationships and attend seminars on current legal issues.

ACCA-SFL, a non-profit association, is the South Florida chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), the world’s largest community of in-house counsel, serving the professional and business interests of attorneys who practice in the legal departments of corporations, associations, and other private-sector organizations around the globe. ACCA-SFL serves approximately 380 members from Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties. ACCA-SFL partners with its sponsors to provide innovative networking opportunities, substantive programs and community outreach by holding several events for its members each year. For 2012 our major events include “A Night at the Museum”, held on May 4, 2012 at the Boca RatonMuseum of Art, ACCA@Bat!!, held on July 27, 2012 at the Clevelander suite at the new Miami Marlins Ballpark, and last but not least, ACCA-SFL’s third annual CLE conference – “The Real In-House Counsel of South Florida”, to be held on September 20, 2012 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Additionally, several breakfast CLEs are hosted during the calendar year. ACCA-SFL’s 2012 Platinum sponsors are Bilzin Sumberg, Fox Rothschild and Katz Barron.
