The ACC Houston Chapter will host its 19th Annual Ethics Seminar & Golf/Spa Event on February 27, 2018.

This is the Houston Chapter’s member-only marquee event of the year and it is sure to be another great success!  Guest tickets are for sponsor representatives, only. Registration opens January 16, 2018. In addition to our annual golf tournament and spa retreat, the ACC Houston chapter has added Golf Lessons this year to the afternoon activity choices.  Memorial Golf Course Pro Instructors will give afternoon lessons to those that sign up for this option.  We hope this addition is well received by many!  Club rentals can be included.

CLE topic: #Unplug? Legal and Ethical Challenges for Employers in an Online World

BoyarMiller offers an interactive workshop on the legal and ethical considerations in the employment lifecycle from pre-employment through post-termination. Screening applicants, monitoring policies, remote work considerations, and access to social media during and post-employment can create ethical questions and legal ramifications for every company. The panel will address common concerns during the many stages of employment and inside counsel will also get the chance to collaborate on best practices for internal policies and procedures.

2.0 Hours CLE with 2.0 Hours Ethics included.

Last year's event was also held at the Houstonian Hotel & Spa, the day began with over 200 local members enjoying two hours of ethics CLE over breakfast. Author and attorney, Mr. Talmage Boston, gave an engaging, entertaining and scholarly CLE presentation using excerpts from his most recent book, Cross Examining History. The second CLE was presented by Night Court, a volunteer group of Houston attorneys that perform musicals to raise money for Houston-area charities.

After the CLE presentations, members and sponsors either stay for a networking lunch at the Houstonian prior to their spa appointments or head to the nearby Memorial Park Golf Course to enjoy lunch and a day of golf. Over 130 members and sponsors enjoyed spa appointments, yoga classes, tennis lessons, or take advantage of the quiet work spaces provided. Over 85 members and sponsors enjoy a round of golf. The day ends with members and sponsors reconvening for an evening reception to further socialize and network and announce winners of raffle prizes and golf awards.

This fun and informative event is incredibly popular with our members and sponsors. It highlights the great value of the ACC membership by providing a full day of fun and pampering while also providing great CLE and networking opportunities.

Special Thank You to our returning Marquee Event Sponsor: BoyarMiller
