CMCP Corporate Connections Match Disclaimer

CMCP cannot guarantee scheduled interviews for an attorney who registers for the conference to participate in Corporate Connections.


Interview scheduling is dependent upon (a) the practice areas and other interview parameters specified by registrants, (b) potential conflicts of interest, and (c) registrants “Do Not Match” requests.


Registration fees are non-refundable for an attorney with no Corporate Connections interviews or if for any reason the attorney cannot meet with a scheduled company or firm.


NOTE: Corporate Connections is just one of many ways in which connections are made and relationships are built at the CMCP Annual Business Conference. CMCP will send complete interview information to those registered for Corporate Connections as soon as feasible after registration closes.


NOTE FOR LAW FIRMS: CMCP assigns Corporate Connections interviews based on a law firm (not individual attorney.) Each firm is responsible for designating the individual(s) or team to attend scheduled interviews:

  • Every attorney who attends Corporate Connections interviews must be registered for general conference registration as well.
  • Interviews are only 25 minutes. Attorneys representing the firm should be well prepared and able to discuss concisely the relevant practice area.
  • Interviewers generally expect to meet with attorneys of color with expertise in the designated interview practice areas.


DO NOT MATCH REQUESTS: CMCP understands there may be companies, public agencies or law firms with which an organization cannot meet due to conflicts or other reasons.
