ICC YAF Conference: September 9
The ICC YAF Regional Conference is a full day event, where members of the Secretariat of the ICC International Court of Arbitration and arbitration practitioners from North America will engage in interactive discussions on key issues of international arbitration. The conference will bring together current ICC YAF Regional Coordinating Committee members (RCCs) whose term will end with this event, and newly appointed RCCs whose 2 year mandate will then start.
Current ICC YAF RCCs will animate the North America Hall Debate, by submitting to the audience provocative statements, questions or propositions related to hot topics in international arbitration, whilst the newly appointed ICC YAF RCCs will debate on finding the best place of Arbitration throughout the country.
