Midwest Compliance Summit Promises ‘Can’t-Miss’ Agenda


CHICAGO — Organizers of Compliance Summit, a series of regional events dedicated to front-end compliance, have announced that the agenda for the Midwest event is nearing completion and will feature high-profile compliance experts and thought leaders. The conference is scheduled for April 20–21, 2015, at the DoubleTree Chicago O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill.

“This will be an event to remember for those who attend,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Monthly and F&I and Showroom magazines. “We look forward to bringing the talent, expertise and boots-on-the-ground experience dealers need to tackle this very difficult subject.”

April 21 will feature a full day of sessions divided into four key topic headings: Rules and Regulations, Your Responsibilities, Easy-to-Implement Processes and Controls and Is This Compliant? The last will be an open-forum discussion among speakers and attendees. Robert Harkins, vice president and director of training for AFG Training Academy, will serve as master of ceremonies.

The welcome address, “Dealer Beware,” will be delivered by Randy Crisorio, president and CEO of United Development Systems Inc. (UDS). Crisorio, a Chicago native, is expected to review recent and ongoing actions taken against dealers by state and federal regulators, including the Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

“Having experienced the quality of content exchanged in the first Compliance Summit and the tenor of the regulatory bodies involved in our business, I anticipate a lot of interest in attending and a heavy dose of growing useful information,” Crisorio said.

Further details, including the full agenda and information about registration and accommodations, will be available in the coming weeks. For sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, contact Eric Gesualdo via email hidden; JavaScript is required or call 727-612-8826.
