Beyond Borders: Business and Law in the Global Village
As in-house counsel, your reach is wider than the workplace and closer than meets the eye. Our 2018 event theme “Beyond Borders: Business and Law in the Global Village”, embodies the present and future of in-house counsel—both in Canada and abroad.
Hosted by the Canadian Corporate Counsel Association (CCCA) in celebration of its 30th anniversary, the 2018 In-House Counsel Worldwide (ICW) Summit is a combined event with the CCCA National Conference. The result? An exceptional national conference complete with a global experience. The CCCA sees the “big picture” and looks forward to bringing an international perspective to the in-house collective.
The 2018 CCCA National Conference and ICW Summit will be held in Toronto—Canada’s largest city and one of the most multicultural cities in the world. Toronto is a global hub for business, finance and the arts.
