To The Readers Of The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel:

The buzz is already building for this year's ACCA SoCal Annual Gala Dinner - our 14th!

ACCA SoCal is honored that former President Bill Clinton will be our keynote speaker. Following in our series of internationally renowned speakers, from General Colin Powell, Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Vice President Al Gore to last year's presenter, Prime Minister Tony Blair, President Clinton will discuss the challenge of globalization, emphasize our growing interdependence, and point the way toward a common future based on shared goals and values in a speech entitled Embracing our Common Humanity.

Former President Clinton served the United States for eight years during a time of unprecedented prosperity and change. Now, he is a powerful voice for progress as he shares his unique insights and observations with audiences around the world, focusing on issues like global climate change, HIV/AIDS in the developing world, economic opportunity in the U.S., childhood obesity, and economic development in Africa and Latin America.

A fixture in the SoCallegal community's social calendar, this year's illustrious gala will be held on May 1 at the storied downtown Westin Bonaventure Hotel.Last year's gala featuring Tony Blair drew hundreds of attorneys and business executives, along with numerous dignitaries and many respected members of the judiciary.Sponsorship opportunities are still available for what is sure to be the hottest ticket for Legal Eagles this year!
