Overview (Program Summary)



ACC Houston March Chapter Meeting CLE: Planning Ahead for Disaster Response

When workplace disasters strike (such as explosions, chemical releases, and catastrophic injuries), a host of legal issues are immediately implicated and require pre-planning for how to respond to the first wave of government investigations by OSHA/EPA or others, while also anticipating the second wave of litigation that may follow.

We are encouraging all of our members to invite fellow in-house counsel to attend and join us for our Chapter Meeting in March. For this month only, subject to availability, all non-member in-house counsel guest may attend with a complimentary ticket. All members that bring a guest will be entered into our door prize raffle and will receive an additional $5 off their next Chapter Meeting registration with a discount code!  There will be SWAG and incentives for the invited in-house counsel guests to become members of ACC.  We look forward to seeing you at the Chapter Meeting in March!
