—ACC's Operating Philosophy
Dear ACC Colorado Chapter Members,
Every morning as I walk out my door I wonder which of four climates I’ll be experiencing: Dallas; Seattle; Denver; or some of all three? While the weather has been unpredictable, what has not is the way many of us have been spending the majority of our days: drafting data processing agreements; drafting GDPR-related policies; dusting off our sexual harassment policies; and perhaps even providing training to our colleagues on all of the above. I believe the recent developments in privacy law both here in Colorado and in California are just the tip of the iceberg. The good news is that with proper planning, we can all avoid the perils posed by the iceberg. ACC, together with our sponsors, are here to help guide you through the privacy and sexual harassment-related perils, so please take advantage of your membership!
The next few months offer you a great opportunity to take advantage of your membership with the opportunity to attend some of ACC’s marquee events: Family Day with the Colorado Rockies scheduled for August 12, and Fall Frenzy scheduled for October 4. Providing valuable legal education to our members, along with opportunities to network with in-house colleagues and sponsors is very important to ACC Colorado. Just as important is our involvement in the community. To that end, on September 29, we will be hosting our Fourth Annual Clay Shooting Charity Tournament, the proceeds of which we donate to First Descents, a non-profit helping young adults with cancer. New this year, ACC will be participating in the 2018 MuckFest MS Denver in support of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. We would love to enter two teams to “muck it up”, so please register as a member of “ACCessories to Mud Rucking”. The 2018 ACC Annual Meeting is in Austin, Texas this year. I would love to see a large turnout from the Colorado Chapter.
Here’s to a great second half of 2018. Salud!
ACC Colorado President
