Program Description

View the Brochure

Every year, this program brings together legal counsel, compliance officers, and government representatives for an invaluable learning and networking opportunity. This year, the program offers twelve compliance-focused sessions, six fundamentals sessions, and intermediate to advanced sessions, where speakers will delve deep into issues and offer insight and solutions to the most significant fraud and compliance issues facing your clients.

During Thursday's plenary session, attendees will get an inside look at how two companies, along with their legal and compliance teams, faced a government investigation, negotiated settlement, and currently manage post-settlement oversight. The panelists will offer best practices and lessons learned from helping a company react to a government investigation including guiding management and business units through the obstacles faced starting with the initial response all the way through to resolution.

The program includes several informal networking opportunities where you can meet others who face similar day-to-day issues as you do and come up with solutions together. Some of the best networking happens in sessions, at breakfast, and during the receptions. We also encourage you to register for these additional learning opportunities: Compliance Professional Networking Breakfast; Networking Breakfast hosted by AHLA's Women's Leadership Council: and the Fraud and Abuse Practice Group luncheon.

If you are interested in being a sponsor or exhibitor for this program please contact Valerie Eshleman.
