We received the following announcement today which is being posted for your information.
As regulators in the U.S. and around the world are issuing more stringent rules and strengthening their oversight, the current economic conditions are creating more challenges for compliance programs. At no time has promoting and maintaining an ethical corporate culture been as challenging and as essential for a companys survival, well-being, and success.
At PLI’s Corporate Compliance and Ethics Institute 2009, scheduled to be held in Chicago on May 20-21, 2009, in New York City and via Live Webcast on June 4-5, 2009, a distinguished faculty, drawn from major corporations, ethics organizations, law firms, academia, and the government, will give you the tools you need to advance or develop an effective compliance program. Experts in the field will discuss how to ensure that your companys compliance program satisfies the rigorous new standards.
The new highly interactive format will allow you to benchmark on a real-time basis and learn best practices from your peers:
Effects of the economic downturn and subsequent rulemaking on compliance programs
Higher expectations for reporting on and documenting your program
Conduct and design Compliance Risk Assessments to obtain the most valuable information
The evolving role of the Board – where governance and compliance meet
International considerations – including Anti-bribery developments
Hypotheticals and interactive panels based on real-world scenarios
