4th Annual Corporate Counsel Classic Golf, Spa, Wellness and Networking Event

The Corporate Counsel Classic, held in conjunction with the ACC Annual Meeting, is the premier golf, spa and networking event in the legal community.  Now in its fourth year, this world-class event provides excellent opportunities to network with in-house counsel while playing golf on a professional caliber golf course, experiencing holistically authentic wellness activities, and actively engaging at the always lively evening awards networking reception — all before the ACC Annual Meeting!  We are super excited that this year's event will be here at home, in our own backyard, Washington, D.C.  This event is open to all ACC members and supporters, as well as those who may not be attending or sponsoring the ACC Annual Meeting.
