You are invited!

  • April 21, 2022

We invite you to participate in the Canadian Corporate Counsel Association’s national conference! This year’s program is set up so you can create your own schedule of events to attend from May 3 to 19. The CCCA is a part of the CBA and is dedicated to serving the professional, educational, and networking needs of in-house counsel in Canada.

As part of the CCCA national conference, our Executive will host its second annual workshop on May 17 titled “Trends and challenges: peer-to-peer learning”. This workshop is generously co-sponsored by the Marcel A. Desautels Centre for Private Enterprise and the Law.

The workshop is a great opportunity for Section members to engage with CCCA colleagues while discussing common issues and legal developments. Learn how to leverage different leadership styles to navigate corporate governance matters, respond to legislative developments and more!

The Executive would love to hear from you if there are any questions or topics you would like addressed. We are also looking for volunteer facilitators to engage registrants at the virtual tables! If you would like to facilitate at a table, let us know by April 30, 2022.

CBA Business Law Section members can join the workshop for free. RSVP now! Section members will get 25% discount of the CBA member rate if they register for the full conference. You will receive your discount code when you RSVP.
