I learned a couple of days ago that I’ll be speaking at the 2017 ACC annual meeting, in Washington, DC.
In case you didn’t know, ACC is the Association of Corporate Counsel. I’ve enjoyed the time I’ve spent with ACC people. In fact, I’ve scored something of an exacta, as I’ll also be speaking at the 2017 ACC Europe annual meeting in May, as I mentioned in this post.
My ACC annual meeting session is on 16 October 2017, from 4:30pm to 6:00pm. Here’s the description:
409 – Clear and Efficient Drafting, with Ken Adams
Curricula: Contracts & Negotiations, Cross-border/Global
Skill Level: Intermediate
By reassessing how your company drafts contracts, law departments can help corporate become more competitive, reduce risk, and save time and money. Traditional contract drafting relies on copy-and-pasting and dubious conventional wisdom. Join Ken Adams, author of the renowned book A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, to learn a more modern approach involves adopting clear and modern contract prose, training your contracts personnel appropriately, and using information technology to create more efficient processes for transactional work.
For information about the annual meeting, go here. I hope to see some of you there. Make sure you say hi and give me the secret blog handshake.
