Legal Leadership and Transformation in Unprecedented Times. Join us at the 2020 Asia-Pacific Digital Meeting – July 29-30. 

During what is a generational global issue, in-house legal departments are supporting their organisations by managing risk, resolving disputes, promoting business resilience; and conditioning those organisations for the critical recovery phase.

Even more importantly the event will bring the Asia-Pacific in-house community together to share insight and best-practice in what the best and most innovative organisations are doing during these uncertain times. 

We have one objective; to deliver a truly inspirational event for the Asia-Pacific in-house community.

Message from ACC Singapore Chapter President, Mark Wentz

A New Year and a New Board! Thank you to the nominating committee for putting together a terrific slate of officers for this year. It’s not an easy task, but the committee brought together dedicated leaders who will help us chart our course and achieve greater heights.

Our 2 newest additions to the Board are Jasmine Karimi and Terry Thornley.

Many of you might know Jasmine, the Head of Legal at Avanos Medical. She’s been an active supporter of the legal community both during her days in Hong Kong (as the former President of HKCCA - now ACC HK) and more recently in Singapore as an avid contributor at various industry forums and broader events. We look forward to Jasmine’s insights and contribution to the ACC Singapore Chapter.

Terry, the General Counsel APAC at Spenser Stuart is no stranger to the ACC, having previously served actively in the membership committee in the ACC Chicago Chapter, one of the larger ACC chapters in the United States. We look forward to Terry’s experience and foresight as we seek further growth for the ACC Singapore Chapter.

A complete list of our current Board can be found here​​​. Please reach out to engage with any of the Board members or Executive Director, Caroline McConnon.

The most valuable service the Board can offer our members is to actively engage with you, advocate for you, bring programs that enable personal and professional growth, and above all, provide a platform from which our members can forge strong relationships amongst each other and thereby support each other’s journeys as in-house counsel.

The global health crisis that has befallen us, which is particularly pronounced in the APAC region, calls for the in-house legal community to come together and support one another, as we advise our respective organizations not just on legal obligations to employees, customers, shareholders, etc. but also on ethical responsibilities and build resilience. The ACC Singapore Chapter is the perfect platform to provide you connections with your peers, learn at seminars and round table discussions, engage in pro-bono initiatives, and recharge and build bridges at our social events – please do leverage our resources!

I’d be remiss if I didn’t take a moment to thank our Gold, Silver and Bronze Sponsors ​for 2020 – their generous support enables us to bring you many of our exciting programs.

My fellow Board members and I look forward to seeing you at our events and we encourage you to volunteer in our sub-committees and build bridges with each other. With your input and engagement, ACC Singapore Chapter can more effectively focus our resources to bring you the opportunities and events that impact you the most.

Yours truly,

Mark Wentz

In March, HFW highlighted five key operational issues that insurers and insureds alike should consider as they respond to COVID-19 (C-19). Since that briefing a clearer picture has emerged as to what the new “normal” may look like for our industry. Full article here.
