Fifth Annual Full Day Conference, September 27, 2007
Cindy Long, General Counsel, Valley National Bank, and Chair, NJCCA's Fifth Annual Full-Day Conference
NJCCA is making final plans for its Fifth Annual Full Day Conference being held on September 27 at the Hanover Marriott in Whippany, NJ. More than 150 NJCCA members are expected to attend 18 different programs. The Conference features 75 speakers, including attorneys from leading law firms in both New Jersey and New York City, senior executives, general counsels and other in-house attorneys from many Fortune 100 corporations, experts from national consulting companies, and high-ranking government officials.
The total fee for NJCCA members is $149 for registrations made prior to August 25 and $175 for registrations made after that date. In-house counsel, who are not yet NJCCA members, are invited to attend at the total fee of $195 for registrations made prior August 25 and $220 after that date.
Programming Developed Based On Membership Survey.
In order to maximize the usefulness of the conference to those attending, all of the topics for the conference were developed based on a membership survey that NJCCA conducted a few months ago. The survey asked members to identify their level of interest in various substantive areas of law and to rank by their importance a number of professional enhancement issues. The conference planning committee then took the most highly ranked legal and professional enhancement topics and created programs directly related to those topics.
