So turns out going in house was the best career move I’ve ever made! The stress of billable hours anchored unhappiness in my life and I recognized it but it took a six month job search to find the right in house role. Does anyone have any recommended organizations to join to connect with other in house counsel?

TechGC also has deputy techGC for the second layer of leadership and techGCx for most everyone else.

Agree with ACC. I’d add ABA Corporate Counsel Sub-Section, but ACC is your best bet.
