Compliance & Ethics Training Program

Past Attendee Testimonials

I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is responsible for developing and implementing compliance and/or ethics programs in his or her organization. This program was full of very practical information and real life examples that I took back to my own start up trust company. The ideas generated through the program and applied in my business have more than covered the cost of attendance.

The ACC Compliance and Ethics Training Program was excellent in all respects. As the Chief Compliance Officer at a small company with many areas of responsibility, I found it extremely valuable to leave the program with a comprehensive view of current compliance issues, ways to handle them, and new professional connections in the compliance arena.

I believe the ACC Compliance and Ethics training program serves as an essential resource for small to medium-sized law departments because it functions as a much needed co-counsel on compliance matters.
