From February 5-7, 2023, SABA will conduct its inaugural Corporate Counsel Retreat (“CCR”) at the Park MGM Las Vegas. SABA will bring together teams of its corporate counsel ranks and their colleagues for a weekend focused on in-person professional development, networking, mentoring, and team building. The CCR will include educational sessions from “Retreat Faculty” selected from influential industry leaders as well as Sponsor Law Firms. The CCR will also allow a select number of outside sponsoring law firms to interact with Retreat attendees during dinner rounds and have a platform to discuss substantive issues with our attending Corporate Counsel members ranging from legal updates to practical advice to professional development. The Retreat will most likely feature a Golf Outing designed to pair up law firm sponsors with corporate counsel. The Park MGM Las Vegas will be the perfect background for a fun winter getaway filled with fine dining, entertainment, camaraderie, and recreation.
THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED!
Applications for the Corporate Counsel Retreat are now due on November 11th, 2022! Selected participants will be informed by November 18th, 2022 and will be asked to confirm their attendance by December 1st, 2022.

Letter from Corporate Counsel Section Co-Chairs
Dear SABA members,
The three of us have the pleasure of leading the Corporate Counsel section, and from meeting so many of you over the years it’s become incredibly clear what a wide range of experience all of you have. We wanted a more concentrated way to gather this experience and help each other be best positioned to leap forward in our careers.
We are thrilled to open up applications for our first ever Corporate Counsel Retreat! The Retreat will be held from February 5 -7, 2023 in Las Vegas. This inaugural retreat will be an intimate affair, with an honestly fun mix of programming, social events, and network building. Our hope is that our attendees can come away from these few days together with a new perspective, new friendships, and a reinforced belief that as members of SABA North America we can all go further together than we each can alone.

We hope to see you in Vegas!
Lalitha, Bijal, and Arun
