DELVACCA Reaches 1,000th Member!!
In late January 2010, DELVACCA reached a membership high point--its 1000th Member, with 1014 members as of the date of this publication! To put this membership count in perspective, ACC, as of December 31, 2009, consists of 25,600 members worldwide and DELVACCA ranks 8th in membership amongst the ACC Chapters (ranking in number of members below Washington DC area, San Francisco, Southern California, Chicago, Greater New York, Europe, and New Jersey (Northern).
Our 1000th member was Ronald J. Reybitz, Senior Counsel at PPL Services Corporation and here's what he had to say: "I am pleased to be DELVACCA's 1000th member! As busy in-house practitioners, we at PPL are often in need of good resources for our practices. We believe that our ACC membership will help to meet many of our needs, including "best practice" metrics and information. The cost of membership to PPL is a real value given the quality resources that we will be receiving. Congratulations DELVACCA on its growth and I look forward to participation with the Chapter".
The growth of the Chapter is consistent with the Chapter's strategic plan for growth. The viability of the organization and ACC as a whole, largely depends on the strengths of its membership roster. The Chapter continues to gain national prominence as one of the premier Chapters of ACC and the increase in membership can be attributed to the growing benefits that the Chapter provides.
The growth does not come without the Board's strong commitment towards supporting the initiatives and strong membership plan of the Chapter. Grace Manno, Second Vice President and Chair, Membership Committee remarks, "It was only a matter of time before DELVACCA reached its long-standing goal of surpassing more than 1000 members. This milestone is the culmination of efforts from many people, including my predecessor, Tom Molchan, and our previous Board Members and Officers. It’s also testament to the quality of the organization, its programs and events to be able to represent that DELVACCA is over 1000 members strong".
We proudly take this opportunity to thank all of the Chapter leaders whose dedication, persistence and tireless work have lead to this most auspicious time in the Chapter's growth.
