2017 Sponsorship Packages

Introduction

The Board of Directors of ACC–NYC is pleased to present the Chapter’s 2017 Sponsorship Program.

The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) is the world’s largest community of in-house counsel, with more than 40,000 in-house counsel members in over 85 countries around the world.  ACC-NYC is one of the organization’s largest chapters with over 1,700 members, serving members in New York City and Long Island (and surrounding boroughs).  ACC-NYC continues to strive to provide its in-house members with the highest quality and most relevant programming that connect across multiple industries and companies of various sizes.  ACC-NYC was awarded the Chapter Achievement Award by ACC for the 2011-2012 program year and was the recipient of the prestigious “Outstanding Chapter of the Year” in 2013. The Chapter was also nominated for “Large Chapter of the Year” in 2015.

The Chapter’s annual sponsorship program provides private law firms and legal service vendors the opportunity to network with in-house counsel and demonstrate expertise through continuing legal education (CLE) programs, networking, professional growth thought leadership and branding opportunities by partnering with the ACC-NYC Chapter.

Features of the 2017 Sponsorship Program

The 2017 Sponsorship Program for the Chapter has a variety of annual sponsorship levels, each of which provides a robust bundle of Programming, Networking and Promotional opportunities. The Sponsorship packages and a la carte options are summarized in the following Sections, but generally consist of the following:

The 2017 Sponsorship Program, although offering the same general benefits to our Sponsors, has been revitalized to create consistency and value for our Sponsors and Members along with even more opportunities for high level Sponsors to engage with membership through guaranteed Core Programming (Full Day and Half Day) throughout the year!

Sponsor Program General Provisions

The term of an annual Sponsorship under the 2017 Sponsorship Program runs January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017 (“Sponsor Term”). Any deviations must be approved by the ACC-NYC Executive Director (Amy Adams, ednyc@accglobal.com), VP, Sponsorships and VP, Programming.

All Sponsors must complete the Sponsorship Application. By completing the Sponsorship Application, you represent that: (1) you have carefully reviewed the terms and conditions of the 2017 ACC-NYC Sponsorship Program and that you are committed to working within the Sponsorship Guidelines (set forth in appendix 1) and will commit the necessary resources to maintaining the Chapter’s reputation for best-in-class programming; 2) you are authorized to submit the Sponsorship Application on behalf of the applicant; and 3) you will remit the requisite Sponsorship Fees to ACC-NYC by the stated deadline.

Payment in full must be received by January 9, 2017 (“Payment Due Date”) for the awarded Sponsorship or within thirty (30) days of invoice, whichever occurs later, unless other payment arrangements have been approved by the Executive Director (Amy Adams, ednyc@accglobal.com). In the event that Sponsorship Fees are not timely received, ACC-NYC may elect to cancel the Sponsorship and Sponsor forfeits all benefits of the Sponsorship. The Sponsorship may be reassigned to another Sponsor. All Sponsorship Fees are non-refundable.

Sponsorship Application Process

The 2017 Sponsorship Application is available online at: www.sponsoraccnyc.com

The Sponsorship Application deadline has been extended until November 30, 2016 (“Application Due Date”). We hope to announce Sponsor awards by December 9, 2016. Sponsorship packages are not awarded on a first come, first serve basis. Instead, all applications submitted by the filing deadline will be reviewed and evaluated based upon responsiveness to the Sponsor Selection Criteria set forth below. Note that this is an application for Sponsorship only. Submitting this form does not guarantee Sponsorship for the 2017 ACC-NYC Sponsorship Program.

Sponsor Selection Criteria

The ACC-NYC Board of Directors has adopted the following criteria for the selection of its Sponsors:

  1. ACC-NYC is committed to selecting a mix of Sponsors that offer a variety of information, expertise, services and/or products to our members. The Chapter is committed to aligning Sponsors with membership needs and interest in terms of practice area expertise, industries, diversity and size of firm and/or company.
  2. ACC-NYC seeks Sponsors that are able to provide information, idea and expertise that are valuable to our members whilst still leveraging creativity and flexibility in developing and presenting relevant and quality Programming for the Chapter. The Chapter values innovation and uniqueness.
  3. The ACC-NYC is an active Chapter with over 1,700 members. Therefore, the Chapter is dedicated to selecting Sponsors that have a history of working closely and effectively with our Chapter’s Board and Executive Director. Chapter sponsors who have experienced significant attendance at our prior events and who have received favorable feedback with respect to their Programs will be favorably considered. In addition, the Chapter places great value on its relationships with sponsors who have demonstrated a willingness to step in and assist the Board when sponsor assistance has been needed.  While, we value our existing or past  Sponsors, the Chapter is also interested in attracting new Sponsors that meet the criteria and who demonstrate a willingness to partner with the Chapter to produce relevant and high quality Programming and Events.
  4. The ACC-NYC emphasizes the importance of growth (for itself, its members and its Sponsors). As such, the Chapter will give preference to prior Sponsors who have helped the Chapter grow and have been consistent and cooperative partners.
