TAMPA, Fla. — Leading attorney and compliance expert James S. Ganther has agreed to speak at the upcoming Compliance Summit Las Vegas, organizers announced Tuesday. The event is scheduled for Aug. 29–30, 2016, at Paris Las Vegas, as part of Industry Summit.

“I’ve been privileged to have participated in each of the Compliance Summits since the initiative was launched in Miami in 2014,” Ganther said. “Each one has been better than the last, so I know the Las Vegas version will be a winner!”

Ganther will serve as the featured speaker for the Your Responsibilities portion of the event’s agenda, which will also include featured presentations and panel discussions dedicated to Rules and Regulations and Easy-to-Implement Processes and Controls.

As with past events, the educational sessions will be capped by “Is It Compliant?,” an open forum among Compliance Summit speakers and attendees. Unlike past events, Compliance Summit Las Vegas will continue with a comprehensive review session followed by an opportunity for attendees to sit for an exam to earn Certified Automotive Compliance Specialist status. Attendees are also invited to take part in the rest of Industry Summit, which also includes two full days of sales and F&I training.

“In words and deeds, Jim Ganther has been a stalwart advocate of front-end compliance and supporter of Compliance Summit,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “We are honored to have him back.”

Registration for Compliance Summit Las Vegas is open at the event’s website. Attendees who register by July 29 will enjoy a $100 discount.
