Letter From The President Of The Minnesota Chapter Of The Association of Corporate Counsel (MNACCA)

2008-07-01 00:00

To The Readers Of The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel:

The Minnesota Chapter of ACC is a very active and diverse chapter. We have 530 members from 175 different companies doing business in the state. Our members come from large corporations with 30+ lawyers, from small companies with only one person making up the entire legal department, and from companies that fall somewhere in between. Our members enjoy all the many benefits included in ACC membership and have a chance to take part in some great local programming.

If you aren't already a member of ACC, try us out and you'll see that no other organization can provide you with so much opportunity. Contact our chapter office at mnacca@acc.com to get a complimentary user ID and password. Then visit the ACC website at www.acc.com and check out all the resources. And don't miss the Minnesota Chapter page at www.acc.com/chapters/minn.php for a listing of local events such as CLE programs and networking socials. If you're not a member of ACC and you've never attended an ACC event, you are welcome to come to one (1) of our events at no cost whatsoever. All you'll have to do is RSVP so we know you're coming.

Our New Member Welcome, Thursday, July 31, 5:30-7:30 p.m., will be held at View Restaurant and Bar, 2730 W Lake St., Minneapolis, MN 55416. This is a wonderful venue offering a fabulous view of Lake Calhoun. All members are encouraged to join us as we welcome new members to our chapter. At the event you can also hear more about the ACC Annual Meeting which will take place October 19-22, 2008 in Seattle, WA. Please RSVP to Chapter Administrator Betsy Handlson at mnacca@acc.com. This event is sponsored by 2008 Special Membership Sponsor Lindquist & Vennum PLLP who have also invited all MNACCA members to dinner in Seattle.

Although we don't have a large number of events during the summer months, our board of directors and our various committees are tirelessly working to bring you quality programs and events in September and beyond.

If you have any questions about our chapter, please contact our Chapter Administrator, Betsy Handlson, at 651-771-1218 or mnacca@acc.com.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events.
