the handout announcing the new SIGMA

official debut, SIGMA 6 is ACA's series
of teleseminars focusing on essential
compliance and legal education.
Designed by ACA's Members Attorney
Program Committee, the SIGMA 6 sessions
are available individually or in a package at
a discounted rate. One of the great things
about these sessions is that the topics will
change each year to help you stay on top of
current industry trends.

April, and while the group registration
