Certification Program 2021 APAC
Take your in-house Career to the next level with the ACC in-house Certification program
The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) is delighted to announce the return of the ACC In-house Certification Program to the Asia-Pacific region.

With two upcoming programs, commencing Monday, July 12th and Monday August 23rd respectively, the program will be delivered in a unique virtual format across eight in-person sessions over a two-week period.  The ACC In-house Certification program draws on the collective knowledge and experience of ACC’s global membership and the program curriculum targets three competency areas: Stakeholder Relations, Department Management, and Legal Services. The 2021 program includes individual reflection, self-paced learning, live instruction, hands-on project and team work experience; and concludes with a final assessment to earn the unique In-House Counsel Certification. Upon completing the program, participants earn the In-house Counsel Certified (ICC) designation. This global elite credential indicates that its holder possesses the competence, skills, and acumen to complement a high-performing organisation.

In-house Insiders is a podcast produced by the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), where you get to hear from some of the most interesting in-house legal professionals in Australia. Hosted by Mei Ramsay, Group General Counsel at Medibank, each fortnight we turn the spotlight on a different individual as we dive into their stories, hear about the challenges they've faced along the way, and the lessons they've learned that have defined their careers. Through the series, we speak to people from diverse backgrounds, at different stages of their careers; all with a unique story to tell.

Message from the ACC Chapter President, Mark Wentz 

The past year was unprecedented in terms of the number of personal and professional challenges most of us face, and despite it all, the camaraderie that exists via the ACC Singapore network remained steadfast, and perhaps even stronger, we rose past these challenges and were able to create opportunities to laugh, sing, and share drinks and nibbles together over various digital platforms, while showing each other warmth, understanding, and empathy.

As we embark on the year of the Ox, may it bring us all the strength and determination to beat the global pandemic, continue to build our networks, find fulfilment and meaning in our careers, and diligently advocate for our profession, clients, and those in need!

As you may know, in November 2020, we had two new additions to our Board and had to bid farewell to a couple of long serving members. A complete list of our Current Board can be found here​​​​. Please reach out to engage with any of the Board members or Executive Director, Caroline McConnon.

The most valuable service the Board can offer our members is to actively engage with you, advocate for you, bring programs that enable personal and professional growth, and above all, provide a platform from which our members can forge strong relationships amongst each other and thereby support each other’s journeys as in-house counsel.

The world has changed over the past 12 months and will continue to have an impact on how organisations run. Systems and ways of working that we took for granted may never return to the old ways, and we must be equipped to flex with the changing times and help our respective organizations successfully navigate the changes. Now more than ever, it is truly  vital that the  in-house legal community come together and support one another, as we advise our respective organizations not just on legal obligations to employees, customers, shareholders, etc. but also on ethical responsibilities and build resilience. The ACC Singapore Chapter is the perfect platform to provide you connections with your peers, learn at seminars and round table discussions, engage in pro-bono initiatives, and recharge and build bridges at our social events – please do leverage our resources!

There’s an old saying – you only get as much out of something as you put in – we’d urge you to put in your time and get involved in our committees. It’s a great way to develop new skills, tone your leadership muscles, contribute, and grow.

My fellow Board members and I look forward to seeing you at our events and we encourage you to volunteer in our committees and build bridges with each other. Let us continue to focus on helping to bring justice to the downtrodden, diversity to our companies and profession, and growing talent here at home in Singapore. With your input and engagement, ACC Singapore Chapter can more effectively focus our resources to bring you the opportunities and events that impact you the most.

Most importantly, we are thrilled to announce our Gold, Silver and Bronze Sponsors ​for 2021 – they have generously come forward to partner with us in our journey of providing programs and services to you – our members. Please join me in thanking them.

On behalf of the ACC Singapore Board, Happy New Year! May the year of the OX be kind to us all!
