The ACC Tampa Bay Chapter (“ACC Tampa Bay”) is a growing, thriving chapter which currently has more than 350 Members.
Our members benefit not only from the availability of ACC national resources but also from the support and professional network created through active involvement in a wide range of chapter-sponsored events.
First and foremost, ACC Tampa Bay offers CLE programs tailored to our members’ needs. Members can meet most, if not all, of their CLE requirements (including ethics) through our programs. Second, the Chapter provides tremendous networking opportunities with peers in various settings conducive to both an exchange of ideas and information as well as the creation of long term relationships.
In addition, ACC Tampa Bay provides members the ability to give back to the community through active participation in community outreach programs and other pro bono activities. Our chapter serves in-house counsel in Charlotte, De Soto, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Polk, Pinellas, Sarasota and Sumter contiguous counties in West Central Florida, including the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Sarasota and Lakeland.
