The Chapter Administrator for the Central Florida Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC-CFL) is an independent contractor position suitable for those who can devote on average approximately 15 hours per week of effort. Although the number of hours are relatively small, the position serves a critical role in the success of the ACC-CFL Chapter. You will manage and cultivate the relationships with the organization’s members and sponsors by providing valuable engagement with the legal community as well as guidance via marketing, events and sponsorship programming. You will develop relevant content, organize and coordinate logistics for impactful educational and social events focused on delivering a high level of hospitality and strong value for all stakeholders involved. You will work closely with our volunteer Board of Directors, our global parent organization and our sponsors (local law firms and legal service vendors) to market the organization’s initiatives, increase the organization’s visibility, and plan, promote and execute events and meetings which support the mission of our organization.
We are the preeminent bar association for in-house corporate attorneys in the larger Orlando metropolitan area, serving our more than 250 members with networking, professional development, educational, and social activities. We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to help our members to grow their careers, satisfy their professional licensing requirements (MCLE), and build business and social relationships.
