ACC Colorado President 2022-2023

Dear ACC Colorado Members,

Wishing everyone a happy 2023! I am very excited to begin my term as President of ACC Colorado. As I write this, the sun is shining, the snow is (finally) melting in my yard and more snow is coming to the mountains. I hope you all have been able to get out and enjoy the beauty and adventure that Colorado has to offer (notwithstanding the traffic on I-70!). In case you missed it, we are officially a “Large” ACC Chapter, with 885 members as of the end of January – and growing – great stuff!

I wanted to share our already busy schedule of events our Board has planned for the beginning of the year. We kicked off this year’s programming on January 25 with Spencer Fane’s panel on the hot topic “Cyber for the Rest of Us: Two Simple Guys Talk About Cybersecurity and Cyber Risk Management.” On February 9, Fisher Phillips offered an all-day CLE, providing very valuable and interactive session on the ever-evolving non-compete laws. On February 15, we are again doing our one-of-a-kind SKI & CLE (fingers crossed for a powder day for those that can make it!). Plus, we have many more CLEs and social events coming soon.

Since everyone’s schedules book up quickly, please also mark your calendars for some of our upcoming signature events: April 20 In-House Counsel Forum; July 30 Family Day at the Rockies; ACC Colorado’s 40th Anniversary Event in late September (more to come on that later!); Ethics Day in the first week of December.

We also want to invite you to share your ideas on any content that you would like to see offered – our sponsors are always willing to be creative to serve the needs of our membership base, so please feel free to reach out to myself or any Board member with your feedback. Please also use the Speaker Interest Form if you’d like to volunteer your expertise as a speaker in any particular area – you don’t need to be a seasoned speaker, just someone willing to share your insights with others that are eager to learn.

Did you know that March is Global Membership Month at ACC? Did you also know that discount codes will be available to encourage your in-house peers to join ACC? Every ACC member is encouraged to invite someone you know or work with to join ACC Colorado!

Hopefully, we get to cross paths at one of the many ACC events between now and the end of the year and if we do, please say “hi!”
