Description

“White collar crime” refers to crimes that are committed by respectable people during the course of their occupation. It is especially important to be aware of the laws that govern our companies as our industry frequently conducts business in locations, which have customs and practices that sometimes challenge the laws that govern our companies.  According to the FBI, "white collar" crimes cost the United States more than $300 billion annually and include crimes such as bribery, insider trading and theft of proprietary information.  This presentation will address areas of our business that might comprise “white collar crimes”.
It is strongly recommended that you pre-register for the luncheon, as walk-ins will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.  All walk-ins will be charged $40 at the door.
