Roundtables are an opportunity for local compliance professionals to meet periodically to network and further their professional development. The Roundtables offer a unique medium for learning which compliments conferences and online resources and many members say this is the best way to stay current.

NOTE: NSCP neither sponsors local compliance Roundtables nor do we have control over participation restrictions, content or format of the meetings.

Rules of Conduct:

  • Persons attending such Roundtables are to be at an experience level that allows them to actively participate in such meetings. Roundtable meetings are not to be considered training opportunities for new firm employees or vendors that are not actively involved in day-to-day compliance functions.
  • Persons attending the Roundtables are not to use the meetings as marketing opportunities.
  • Nothing discussed at the Roundtables is to be used to obtain competitive advantages over other firms.

Intimate. A small group of your peers, whom you will get to know well through periodic meetings which offer enhanced opportunities for learning.

Interactive. The difference between conference style seating and meeting style seating may seem subtle, but the atmosphere is very different. Meeting style seating is very conducive to interactive participation by the attendees.

Probing. Roundtable meetings allow the members to probe much deeper into subjects than is possible at conference workshops. The Roundtable leader will work with speakers to focus the content and ensure the presentation is interactive. In addition, due to the intimacy of a Roundtable, members can share information and resource materials offering the practical guidance not often provided in a conference setting.

Economical. Some are free and others may charge a nominal fee however Roundtables are still a very economical and enjoyable way to improve your knowledge and skills and network with like compliance professionals.

NSCP does not sponsor Roundtables but NSCP does work with a number of Roundtables throughout the country to get the word out to members about upcoming events. The Roundtables are autonomous and most are open to new members. NSCP membership is not required to join the Roundtable but other restrictions may apply.
