Last year, Chief Compliance Officers from a myriad of industries came together for ACI’s inaugural “Chief Compliance Officer Executive Roundtable.” Designed as a series of interactive, candid discussions on highly complex issues and the evolving CCO role, participants benefitted from a meaningful opportunity to exchange “war stories” and best practices.

Based on tremendous feedback from the inaugural Roundtable, the 2nd Chief Compliance Officer Executive Roundtable will take place once again on Day 1 of the conference-November 28, 2017. This unique boardroom-style forum will provide exclusive networking and benchmarking on pressing global compliance challenges and the CCO function. The agenda will be fully updated toward ensuring a worthwhile experience for new and returning participants.

*Attendance is exclusively for qualified applicants with the “Chief Compliance Officer” title (or who hold similar titles with the same scope and level of job responsibilities).

**In order to ensure a smaller-group setting, attendance will be limited. We urge all interested parties to submit their inquiry before the event fills to capacity.
