Inaugural FCPA seminar for auditors and accountants in Houston

The American Conference Institute is offering a new, one-day workshop on January 21, 2014 targeting audit and accounting professionals and their responsibility for implementing anti-corruption compliance programs and internal controls.

This seminar will precede the regularly scheduled FCPA Boot camp, a two-day event being held on January 22 and 23. Both events will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Houston, Texas, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The new seminar will feature forensic accountants, lawyers and senior compliance professionals. Topics will include:

  • Deciphering the books and records provision of the FCPA and dealing with its daily relevance to your company's recordkeeping
  • Conducting internal audits as part of your own review or in tandem with an investigation conducted by the SEC
  • Uncovering red flags and weak internal controls
  • Crafting a corruption risk assessment for your company to evaluate your compliance protocols
  • Knowing how to handle critical issues involving gifts and entertainment, travel, sales commissions, consulting fees, etc.
