Dear Fellow ACC SoCal Members,
I know that we are all watching the development of the coronavirus pandemic with feelings of concern and uncertainty. The ACC SoCal family and the world in general, are in uncharted territory, and it is important that we remain calm, show solidarity and stand by each other in this difficult time. Even though most of you are physically distanced from your ACC SoCal network, please stay in touch with each other and offer each other support where possible. I would like to extend a personal “thank you” to our Chapter Administrator, Betty St. Marie, and our loyal sponsors for offering informative articles and online programing opportunities in such a short period of time.
We are pleased to announce that we had a record of 206 attendees for a recent webcast last month from one of our sponsors and many of our Sponsors are providing invaluable content and information via ACC Webcast CLE programs to reach our ACC Members with important and relevant CLE content. Our ACC Members have described the experience with such Webcasts as extremely informative and user-friendly. We invite you to join us for an upcoming webinar. Please visit our events page HERE for more information.
One of my priorities is to make sure that ACC Southern California members are aware of the many resources and tools available throughout the year. We remain committed to your daily professional legal needs, but also to support your career development and advancement. Here are a few online resources that I want to make sure you are aware of:
- COVID-19 – ACC Resource Center — a curated selection of resources (news, webcasts, forums, etc.) to help in-house counsel navigate the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic
- ACC Docket — news of public events impacting our legal world
- ACC Resource Library — a large repository of forms, policies, contracts, surveys and compliance documents
- ACC SoCal Job Listings — one of, if not the best, job boards for in-house opportunities
Spring has arrived, and we promise to keep you updated regarding upcoming programs and events. We are currently evaluating options related to a re-schedule of our 2020 Gala and Pro Bono Silent Auction to a date in the future, and we look forward to providing you with online educational opportunities while many of us are housebound. Again, please stay safe and healthy out there.
President, ACC Southern California, 2019-2020
