After careful consideration of the available information to date, we are making the difficult, yet necessary, decision to postpone the Global General Counsel Summit to 2021. We are taking this action to protect the health and safety of our members, presenters, sponsors, and staff, and all those involved in our events.

Although we are disappointed to not be able to gather this year, we are excited to announce that the 2021 Global General Counsel Summit will be held 2-4 June in Zurich, Switzerland.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this outbreak and the entire ACC community wishes them a fast and full recovery. We greatly appreciate your support and understanding as we all work through this unprecedented situation together.
