NAM's ACC-NYC Chapter Signature Social held at the Tenement Museum.

New York, NY (May 23, 2019) – On Tuesday, May 14th, NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation), one of the nation's leading providers of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services, held its exclusive Diamond Sponsor Signature Social event for the members of the Association of Corporate Counsel – New York City Chapter (ACC-NYC) at the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The evening entitled, Tours and Hors d' Oeuvres at the Tenement Museum, educated and enriched all those that attended through the tours and tastings provided by the museum.

Nearly 100 In-House Counsel, attorneys from major law firms and NAM neutrals, Richard Byrne, Esq., Michael Emerson, Esq., Rhonda Epstein, Esq., Denis F. Kelly, Hon. Karla Moskowitz and Hon. Melvin L. Schweitzer were in attendance. Each guest was invited to experience the unique history of the Lower East Side through 30-minute custom curated tours at the National Historic Landmark Tenement Building located at 97 Orchard Street. These unique educator-led tours brought to life the diverse and personal stories of immigrant families who settled on the Lower East Side and followed their aspirations to America. The tours were paired with ethnic food tastings from handpicked local neighborhood establishments.

Amy J. Adams, Executive Director of ACC New York City stated, “NAM has once again, showed that it knows how to throw a social. The Tenement Museum venue was unique and thoroughly enjoyed by all. On behalf of the membership, I would like to thank NAM for an amazing evening.”
