EMEA and APAC webcasts on topics of interest
to our global members. We also co-sponsor
an annual conference with the ACC Southern
California Chapter. We are working with our
committee sponsor, Ogletree Deakins, to establish a series of local networking events, including in spaces outside of our largest markets.
And our committee Twitter feed (@ACCSELC)
does a good job of tweeting out stories that may
be of interest to our members.
What substantive practice issues
does your committee address?
Our committee membership is much broader
How has the Sports & Entertainment
than just entertainment companies and sports
teams or leagues, so we try to cover a range of
issues — from those unique to our industries to
more general issues. And we are trying to de-
velop a more global focus as well. Some of the
practice issues we have looked at over the last
couple of years include topics such as labor and
employment updates, IP issues, data licensing,
and more niche topics such as net neutrality
and team acquisitions.
Committee helped you in your career?
I joined ACC for the resources and stayed for
the people. I actually think the committee has
helped me more in a personal and profession-al development context than in my career. It
has introduced me to aspects of the sports and
entertainment industry that I wouldn’t have
been exposed to otherwise. ACC
