If you didn’t know already, the US’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is an American federal law that prohibits US citizens and companies from offering bribes to foreign government officials for their own professional benefit.
This law applies to the entire world and includes activities performed by publicly traded companies, their staff members, and other related individuals such as shareholders and agents.
Each year, the American Conference Institute runs the International Conference on the FCPA (now in its 38th iteration), and we’ve gladly joined them this year as one of their Media Partners.
As with our past collaborations, AGRC members are eligible to receive a 10% discount to this event, which will be held on December 1-2, 2021, both in person in Washington DC and virtually for those concerned with that pesky virus making the rounds.
Apply the AGRC code D10-700-700NX05 upon check out and see you in DC (or virtually) at the end of November.
Why Should You Attend?
For all intent and purposes, this is the premier annual gathering for the FCPA & anti-corruption community in the US and beyond.
Participants have access to a whole range of government officials, both local and international, from organizations such as the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Homeland Security, France’s National Financial Prosecution Office, and the UK’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO), among others.
Attendees will also include in-house legal and compliance professionals, as well as outside counsel and advisors, for companies such as Merck & Co., Inc., Kimberly-Clark, Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP, PwC, Citigroup Inc., Incyte, The Coca-Cola Company, Zoom Video Communications, Bechtel, Microsoft, Cognizant, Uber, MUFG, Bank, Ltd., and many more.
Some of this conference’s main highlights include:
– The DOJ and SEC Year in Review, whereby FCPA Unit Chiefs from the two government institutions provide key updates and address audience questions.
– The US Government Town Hall, which offer participants an opportunity to pose their questions to senior officials from the DOJ, SEC, FBI, IRS and HSI.
– Special Industry Groups (SIGs), where audience members can connect in a smaller group setting with like-minded individuals from their industry, expanding their network and gaining best practices tailored to the realities of their business.
– The International Risk Series, which covers unwritten lessons, war stories and other challenges or opportunities that are coming across professionals’ desks. This offers an ideal venue where to learn all about the newest strategies for combatting emerging risk factors.
