    Networking Details

    Meet Your Counterparts (MYC) Event (Philadelphia and Regional)

    The Chapter facilitates regular networking opportunities for members to “meet their counterparts” (MYC) in a social setting at various locations throughout its region.  A single Diamond, Emerald, Platinum or Gold sponsor is invited to host each MYC event to meet members at an exclusive social event.

     

    • Diamond Sponsors have first choice of geographic location and date (specific venues are selected by the Chapter).
    • Regional MYC receptions are held at venues in one of the Chapter’s service regions: Southern New Jersey, Wilmington (See discounted Wilmington and Allentown/Lehigh Valley Opportunities below), Western Suburbs, and Reading.
    • The specific venue is chosen by the Chapter, in consultation with the sponsor.
    • Sponsors may have up to four (4) attendees at the event.
    • No exhibitor tables are provided, but a raffle prize is permitted (the sponsor may collect business cards for such raffles).
    • Food and beverage costs are included in the sponsor fee (although, if the Chapter agrees to hold the event at a more expensive venue at the Sponsor’s request, the additional cost will be borne by the Sponsor.)
      Spring Fling (Spring 2022)

      The Spring Fling is one of Chapter’s most exciting networking events and is held annually in the Spring at a local cultural institution, with most years including al fresco networking. Our Diamond sponsor, plus our Emerald, Platinum and Gold sponsors each receive tickets to the Spring Fling. Past Spring Fling locations have included: The Free Library of Philadelphia, the Independence Seaport Museum, the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center, and the Rodin Museum.

        Fall Gala (Fall 2022)

        The Chapter’s yearly premiere social event is the Fall Gala, which celebrates the Chapter’s achievements throughout the year. All sponsors who have a Sustaining Sponsorship package are invited to join in the festivities and network with our membership (the number of tickets varies according to the sponsorship level; additional tickets may be available for purchase). The format of the Fall Gala varies, but previous locations have included the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Museum of the American Revolution, the National Museum of American Jewish History, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum, and the Franklin Institute.

          In-House Women Lawyers Events

          Our Diamond and Emerald sponsors have the opportunity to host a networking event with the Chapter’s dynamic Women Lawyers Committee, either at sponsor’s offices or another mutually agreed upon location.  Women Lawyers events feature discussions of issues of special interest to women in-house lawyers.  The content or topic of discussion will be coordinated with the co-chairs of the Women Lawyers Committee. Food and beverage costs are included with the sponsorship fee (in certain circumstances, depending upon the venue chosen, a supplemental charge may be required).

            Annual Charity Softball Game and Member Appreciation Night

            The Chapter’s Annual Charity Softball Game and Member Appreciation Night is typically held at the Wilmington Blue Rocks Stadium in Wilmington, Delaware.  This family-friendly event (spouses/partners/children/guests are all welcome) pits in-house attorneys against sponsor attorneys for some friendly competition on the diamond, and provides a unique opportunity for Chapter members, our sustaining sponsors, and their respective families to mix and mingle in a wonderful environment, while simultaneously helping to support our Chapter’s Diversity Internship Endowment Fund.

            All sponsors with a sustaining sponsorship package will be invited to attend and network with our membership. Complimentary tickets will be given to each sponsor.

            Additional sponsorship perks include the following:

            All sponsors may designate one firm attorney to play on the Chapter Sponsor/Law Firm team.

            All sponsors and their guests (especially including children) are encouraged to participate in all of the family-friendly activities that take place before and during the softball game (e.g., kids run the bases, meet the team mascot, etc.).

            Event costs are included in the sponsor fee.

              Chapter Golf and Tennis Outing

              Our Fourth Annual Golf (and now, Tennis!) Outing will be held in the fall of 2022 and will continue to benefit our chapter’s diversity initiatives.  The Chapter will again host this outing at the beautiful Radnor Valley Country Club.  Our Diamond and Emerald Sponsors will each have one foursome (two sponsors and two ACC members) and one tennis player as a part of their sponsor package.  Platinum Sponsor packages include a golf twosome (one sponsor and one ACC member). Additional à la Carte opportunities for this event are described below and provide additional much-needed support for our diversity programs including our ACC Greater Philadelphia Diversity Corporate Internship Program.
