ACC Colorado Kicks off New Year at Union Station

Annual meeting included CLE presentation on information security

Colorado’s community of in-house attorneys convened in downtown Denver last week, commencing a new year that promises as many corporate risk management challenges as the one before.

The Colorado Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel held its Annual Meeting Thursday night at Union Station. In the Crawford Hotel meeting rooms couched in the historic building’s lower level, ACC members took in a data security-focused CLE and a networking reception, as well as a chance to meet this year’s chapter leaders.

ACC President Linda Ramirez-Eaves, in-house counsel at Boulder-based biotech firm SomaLogic, said this year will be pivotal for corporate attorneys due to the social climate.

“We are truly bearing witness to an incredible emergence in activism,” Ramirez-Eaves said in a speech, referencing movements like the #MeToo moment. “It’s a groundswell unlike one that I’ve ever witnessed personally.”
