Business Information Group, Inc. (BIG®) General Counsel N. Alexander Erlam has been appointed Chair of the Association of Corporate Counsel’s (ACC) Leadership Development Institute (LDI) Council for 2011.
The ACC is the world’s largest organization serving the professional and business interests of attorneys who practice in the legal departments of corporations, associations and other private-sector organizations worldwide. Erlam is the immediate past president of DELVACCA, the Philadelphia-area chapter of ACC. He has been a member of the DELVACCA Board of Directors since 2008, and during his tenure, had oversight of all practice committees, as well as sponsorship and programming activities. In 2007, Erlam was awarded the organization’s prestigious “Pursuit of Excellence” award for his leadership excellence in helping to create award-winning programs and events for the chapter. DELVACCA was recognized as the ACC’s Chapter of the Year in 2008 and again under Erlam’s presidency in 2010.
The LDI helps volunteer leaders develop the skills to effectively organize and manage a board of directors and standing committees; increase the in-house bar’s awareness of and need for ACC; recruit, retain and increase member participation in ACC; obtain sponsorships to fund programs and events; and develop programs and events of interest to the in-house bar.
“I am honored to be selected as Chair of the LDI Council from among many well-qualified and dedicated leaders throughout the ACC,” Erlam said. “This is a wonderful opportunity to represent DELVACCA’s interests and to apply our success on the local level on a national and international scale.”
Erlam has been in practice for nearly 20 years, and has developed general employment law expertise, as well as specific knowledge of privacy and background screening law (Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and the Drivers Privacy Protection Act), discrimination law (federal and state anti-discrimination statutes), immigration law, international employment law and general human resources topics. Erlam regularly writes and lectures on these topics for screening and legal industry organizations. He is a graduate of Villanova University and the Temple University Beasley School of Law.
