Thank you for a wonderful program! The content was excellent, and the presentations were extremely well done. The networking opportunities were well-organized and a lot of fun. Great job! I hope to come back again!

CCU was a great intro to in-house and covered the breadth of issues I face everyday, many of which I did not encounter in my previous position at a law firm. I look forward to attending another ACC educational program in the future!
