When I attend ACC’s Annual Meeting, my job is to strategically decide which sessions I will not only tweet from, but also which ones I want to snag for future ACC Docket articles. Over the years, I have witnessed a number of excellent presentations and have asked many of those presenters to consider turning them into articles. This issue is no exception. For instance, “Expanding Markets: What In-house Counsel Should Know About Doing Business in Africa” — an excellent session that I attended at ACC’s Annual Meeting in 2011 — is now an excellent article in the June 2012 issue of ACC Docket.
While I do my best to encourage presenters to write an article, they don’t always say yes. But that’s understandable; we’re all busy people. Luckily, ACC members are consistently sending in potential topics for new articles. And since our authors are the same as our audience, this is an excellent way to ensure that each issue is full of relevant and informative articles dealing with issues that affect in-house counsel around the globe.
The June, global issue of ACC Docket includes the cover story, “The Nuts and Bolts of Employment Agreements for Foreign Employees Working Outside the United States,” and other articles like:
- “Understanding the Rules of the Road for Acquiring Companies in Brazil and India,”
- “Employment Law Mediations: Boldly Going Where Many Have Gone Before,”
- “Kiobel and the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights,”
- “International Assignment: To Take or Not to Take,”
- “International Consumer Product Safety Regulations,”
- “Hot Trends in Global Mobility: Compliance (It’s the New Black),” and
- “Managing Your First Five Years In-house: Canada’s Legal Leaders Weigh In.”
So, if you see something here that sparks your interest, go ahead and give it a read. And, if you don’t see something that you wish would be featured, take the initiative and put that pen to paper. At first, it may seem like a daunting task, but in the end, you will have something to show for it — plus, you’ll be sharing your great experience with your peers.
ACC. It’s all right here..
