International Compliance Association announces next Open Day and global briefing sessions in pursuit of the professionalisation of compliance

The last few years have seen unprecedented interest in careers in compliance, anti money laundering and financial crime prevention. Compliance plays a significant role in facilitating organisational success, a fact that is becoming widely recognised across multiple industries.

Regulatory and financial crime compliance practitioners are developing into key players inside a business, supportive of growth and forward-thinking; people who rely less on a regulation-led mindset and more on wide-ranging business expertise which operates inside the specific framework of a company’s own ethics and governance.

The International Compliance Association will be hosting the Open Day and global briefing sessions with a clear vision in mind: to ensure that students and candidates have the right information so that they can achieve excellence within their career, and develop their roles in line with industry change.

The professionalisation of compliance is a key theme of the ICA’s core message – the introduction of global best practice to ensure that compliance remains at the top of the corporate agenda is a fundamental goal of the Association.

The Open Day will take place in London on 20 September with over 500 people expected to register and further briefing sessions will take place in Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Dublin, Madrid, Athens, Hong Kong and Singapore. Attendees can expect to find out everything they need to know about the wide range of course subject matters and levels, study options, membership and of course the value and international recognition of the qualifications. ICA will be also be hosting a live online Q&A on 3 September for those who can’t attend the face to face sessions.

Bill Howarth, ICA President, commented “these are inspiring times for regulatory and financial crime compliance professionals who are now at the very heart of the business. It’s our job to support these professionals to be the best that they can be and the London Open Day and global briefing sessions present a great opportunity for novice and experienced practitioners to learn more about how we can do this”.

Registration and attendance is free. For more information about how you can get involved see here.
