À La Carte Sponsorship Opportunity Details

In-House Counsel Conference - Various

The In-House Counsel Conference attracts almost 700 in-house lawyers to the Pennsylvania Convention Center and various additional sponsorship opportunities for this event exist.

The following sponsorships are available to both Vendors and Law Firms.

Keynote Speaker/Lunch Sponsor (plus See IHCC Keystone Speaker opportunity below):
Cost:  $5,000 (includes 2 tickets plus signage and recognized in program book)

Cocktail Reception Sponsor:
Cost:  $5,000 (includes 2 tickets plus signage and recognized in program book)

Badge Lanyards:

Breakfast Sponsor:
Cost:  $2,500 (tents on table and signage. Includes 1 ticket)

Wi-Fi Sponsor:
Cost:  $2,500 (tents on table and signage. Includes 1 ticket)

In-House Counsel Conference – Keystone Speaker/Lunch Sponsor
In recognition of the fact that many of our law firm sponsors or vendor sponsors may have relationships with interesting keynote speakers, the Chapter wishes to extend the invitation to law firm sponsors and vendor sponsors to propose a keynote speaker for our In-House Counsel Conference. The keynote speaker is expected to be someone of national prominence, have some relationship to the law and overall be an engaging speaker for our luncheon program. The selection of a keynote speaker will be at the sole option of the Chapter.

In the event a law firm sponsor or vendor sponsor proposes a keynote speaker and that keynote speaker is accepted by the Chapter, all speaker costs must be borne by the proposing sponsor. In exchange, the Chapter will designate the proposing sponsor as the Keynote Speaker/Lunch Sponsor for the In-House Counsel Conference and waive the $5,000 Keynote Speaker/Lunch Sponsor fee set forth above.

Institute Series CLE Program - $5,000

There may be a few slots available for one-hour CLE’s at our Chapter’s Practice Group Institutes, at which three [3] or more sponsors participate. Sponsors electing this program option should provide multiple institute preferences on the request form in order of preference. All venue, food and beverage costs are included in the sponsorship fee. The Chapter has the sole discretion of accepting CLE programs based on need and availability of programming and sponsor interest through the sponsorship packages.

CLE Down the Shore - Sports, Gaming, Entertainment, and Hospitality CLE Institute - $3,000

The Chapter continues its aim to increase participation by southern New Jersey sponsors and members in the Chapter’s various events. In 2018, the Chapter hosted a Sports, Gaming, Entertainment, and Hospitality CLE Institute (and cocktail hour) in Atlantic City, New Jersey on a Friday afternoon in mid-July.  The Chapter is planning on hosting a similar institute this year in Atlantic City, subject to a minimum of 2 sponsors electing this program. To foster this initiative, the Chapter is offering a discount from our regular institute sponsorship fee to those sponsors electing this Institute.

Practice Group Roundtable - $1,000

Sponsor has opportunity to facilitate a legal discussion with the selected Practice Group at a roundtable at the sponsor’s office.  The roundtable provides a forum for the sponsoring firm to interact with a small group of in-house lawyers for a discussion of a particular practice area. CLE credits are not typically offered in order to facilitate this informal discussion. The discussion topics are selected in consultation with the Practice Group Co-Chairs. Roundtables may be held at breakfast, lunch, or in the evening, provided that they do not conflict with another Chapter event. Appropriate refreshments are expected to be provided by the sponsor. Venue, food, and beverage costs are not included in the sponsorship fee.

Business Skills Institute - $3,500 per sponsor (Limit 3)

To supplement Chapter’s traditional substantive law Institute Series, the Chapter will again offer a half-day program consisting of seminars on topics aimed at helping in-house counsel develop business proficiencies, such as skills in finance, accounting, risk assessment, insurance basics, negotiation, budgeting and forecasting.  Each sponsor will have an opportunity to present a single one-hour session.

 

  • Food, beverage and venue costs are included in the sponsorship fee.
  • An exhibitor table will be available to provide promotional materials to attendees.
  • Sponsor may have up to four (4) attendees inclusive of speakers, audience participants and marketing people (the in-house counsel panelist does not count as one of the four allowed attendees).
Arts Event - $1,500 (Limit 1)

Sponsor has an opportunity to host a CLE/networking event of a one-hour CLE presentation on an arts-related topic followed by an arts-themed social and networking event. Venue, food, and beverage costs are not included in the sponsorship fee.

    Paralegal Forum - $1,500 per sponsor

    The Paralegal Forum is the Chapter’s annual fall event targeted towards in-house paralegals.  It is typically a full-day event at a Center City location and the sponsor fee includes an exhibitor table at the event, four (4) event admissions and the sponsor’s name is included in all event promotions.  If sponsor is a law firm or a vendor that provides content relevant to paralegals, presenting a seminar at the event may be possible; a description of your proposed seminar topic should be included with your application on the application form.

      Career Management / In-Transition Committee Programs - $1,500

      Our Chapter’s Career Management/In-Transition Committee has a dual focus: providing meaningful career management programming that can enhance every in-house lawyer’s career path, as well as creating networking opportunities that connect in-house attorneys already in transition or otherwise looking to make a move with existing job openings and personnel and other recruitment firms and consultants.  The Committee holds regular meetings to assist with all facets of the job search and career management guidance.

      • The sponsor is responsible for providing appropriate food and drinks at this event at a mutually agreed venue (which is typically the sponsor’s office.)
      • Sample past topics include: Tips from the Top: Career Advice from the Delaware Valley’s Leading General Counsel; Interviewing Tips for Experienced In-House Counsel Looking to Make a Lateral Move; Media Relations Tips for Corporate Counsel; In-House Counsel Salary Surveys; How to Change Your In-House Practice Area; How to transition from an in-house position to a non-legal position; Legal Career Development Coaching; The Road to General Counsel; How to Effectively Mentor In-House Attorneys to Develop them as Future Department Leaders.

In order to foster this initiative, the Chapter is continuing to offer certain Wilmington and Lehigh Valley/Reading CLE and Meet Your Counterparts events at a discounted price and as à la Carte offerings. Preference will be given to Sponsors who have a presence in the aforementioned regions and develop interesting programs that are relevant to our Wilmington and Lehigh Valley/Reading members.
