Inaugural Compliance Summit Set for Nov. 10-11

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Organizers have announced the launch of the auto industry’s first conference designed exclusively for front-end compliance. Compliance Summit is a series of four regional events, the first of which will be held at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., in November.

The inaugural Compliance Summit will begin with a keynote address from Randy Crisorio, president and CEO of United Development Systems Inc., the afternoon of Monday, Nov. 10, and continue with a full schedule the following day. It will be followed by events in the Midwest, South and West in 2015. The events are open to anyone involved in automotive front-end operations, including dealer principals, general managers, compliance officers and sales and F&I staff, as well as general agents and other industry professionals.

David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Monthly and F&I and Showroom magazines, said Compliance Summit was designed to offer actionable compliance solutions to dealers and their partners.

“We operate in a hostile regulatory environment, and every news cycle brings more threats to our profitability,” Gesualdo said. “Our goal is to create an environment in which dealers and experts can gather, share information and depart with a plan for continued, sustainable front-end success.”

The Compliance Summit agenda is expected to include sessions that identify areas of concern and offer solutions to prevent or resolve them. Subject matter experts will be on hand to discuss topics ranging from regulatory efforts by the CFPB and FTC to best practices and proven strategies for compliance. More details, including the full agenda, will become available in the weeks ahead.

Attendees who register by Oct. 31 will receive a $100 early-bird discount. Click here or call (310) 533-2550 for more information or group discounts.
