With all of the recent changes, you cannot afford to miss these critical updates and informative sessions on emerging issues in the government contracting compliance arena. This conference will provide even the most seasoned professionals with the most cutting-edge comprehensive compliance and ethics review of the industry. It’s a unique opportunity for you to learn from and network with top experts and gain the most up-to-date information and analysis on the current government contracting landscape.
