A Message From The President of ACG Orange County


Hi All:

I hope you are all staying healthy and safe and that your companies are able to ride out and forge ahead during this terrible pandemic. Also, we hope that you're able to enjoy the silver-lining of this quarantine...more cozy down-time with your loved ones. My husband and I haven't cooked this much in years!


First, I want to thank all of you. I have been so encouraged and proud of our members; passion for ACGOC, calling me with ideas on how to stay connected and more importantly how they realize ACGOC is truly greater than the sum of its parts. I'm very inspired by all of you.


Here's an update on ACG Orange County news and upcoming events:


While the 25th Annual Awards Gala has been postponed to the fall, we will be holding several substantive virtual events over the next two months as well as 'happy hours' and other smaller group networking meetings. Our virtual events will have no charge, but they will be for members only.


Our CEO roundtable event, postponed from March, will now be a virtual event held in April. We will also be holding several virtual events led by our sponsors that focus on COVID-19 and its impact on their business and clients, for example, delays in tax filing; securing SBA loans; insurance coverage; and private equity deal making. Dates of our virtual events will be provided soon.


We will hold twice-a-week 'happy hours' where up to 20 members at a time will be able to participate.


PODs can be held virtually (POD leaders will determine when). POD leaders will be provided with a Zoom hosting account from ACG Orange County. Committee meetings will also be held via Zoom hosting accounts.


Stay safe and cozy everyone!

Andrea Casaw

President, ACG Orange County
