2020 Sponsorship Packages

Introduction

The Board of Directors of ACC–NYC is pleased to present the Chapter’s 2020 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 75 countries. ACC-NYC is one of the organization’s largest chapters with over 1,700 members, serving New York City, Long Island, and the Boroughs. Our annual sponsorship program provides law firms and legal service providers the opportunity to network with in-house counsel and demonstrate expertise through continuing legal education (“CLE”) programs, networking, professional growth, thought leadership, and collaborative partnering.

The term of an annual Sponsorship under the 2019 Sponsorship Program runs January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 (“Sponsor Term”), unless otherwise agreed upon with the ACC-NYC Executive Director, VP, Sponsorships and VP, Programming.

All Sponsors must complete the Sponsorship Application. By completing the application, you represent that: (1) you have carefully reviewed the terms and conditions of the 2020 ACC-NYC Sponsorship Program and that you are committed to working within the Sponsorship Guidelines (set forth in Appendix 1); (2) you are authorized to submit the Sponsorship Application on behalf of your firm or company; and (3) you will remit the requisite Sponsorship Fees to ACC-NYC by the posted deadline.

Payment in full must be received by the earlier of thirty days from invoice date or January 10, 2020 (“Payment Due Date”), unless other payment arrangements have been approved by our Executive Director. If Sponsorship Fees are not timely received, ACC-NYC may elect to cancel the Sponsorship and you forfeit all benefits and we may reassign the Sponsorship to another Sponsor. All Sponsorship Fees are non-refundable.

Sponsorship Application Process

The 2020 Sponsorship Application is available online at www.sponsoraccnyc.com. The deadline for Sponsorship Applications has been extended to November 27, 2019, unless otherwise agreed upon with the ACC-NYC Executive Director and VP, Sponsorships.

We intend to announce sponsor awards beginning in mid- to late-November 2019. Each application will be reviewed and evaluated by the ACC-NYC Sponsorship Committee 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 a Sponsorship award for 2020.

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 expertise to our members. The Chapter is committed to aligning Sponsors with membership needs and interest in terms of practice areas, industries, diversity, and size of firm and/or company.

  2. ACC-NYC seeks Sponsors that can provide information that is valuable to our members while still leveraging creativity and flexibility in developing and presenting programming for the Chapter. The Chapter values innovation and uniqueness.

  3. The ACC-NYC is an active Chapter with over 1,800 members. Therefore, we are dedicated to selecting Sponsors that have a history of working closely and effectively with our Chapter’s Board and Executive Director. Returning Chapter sponsors who have experienced significant attendance at prior Chapter events and who have received favorable feedback from our members for those programs will be given preference. In addition, the Chapter places great value on its relationships with Sponsors who have demonstrated a willingness to assist the Board when needed.

  4. The ACC-NYC emphasizes the importance of growth (for itself, its Members, and its Sponsors). As such, the Chapter will give preference to returning Chapter Sponsors who have helped the Chapter grow and have been ­consistent and cooperative partners.
