COVID-19 Update and Resources

September 16, 2020

ACG's commitment to measure and mitigate risk at its events for our members and attendees is steadfast. ACG is an organization built on live networking and your health is paramount to our success. We continue to follow national directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Canadian Public Health Services and World Health Organization (WHO) response to and guidance about the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).


Since March 2020 many of our live events have been canceled, transitioned to virtual events or were postponed. Our network remains alive and vibrant. ACG's member-only summit was attended by more than 2,000 members in June, and additional exclusive summits are scheduled through next year. Chapter events have crossed over state lines and more often than not bring together audiences from different markets. Chapters that are hosting live events are doing so in accordance with federal, state and local directives. 


Be sure to select your chapter for the local list of events.

We understand the critical networking role that ACG plays for middle-market M&A deal-makers. We are grateful for your presence in the ACG vibrant business community. Please contact or your local chapter with additional questions.
