HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Two key industry members from the state of Florida are among the featured speakers at the inaugural Compliance Summit, which be held Nov. 10–11, 2014, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. Ted Smith, president of the Florida Automobile Dealers Association (FADA) and Alex Kurkin, a well-known attorney and veteran dealer advocate with Kurkin Brandes in Aventura, Fla., have agreed to speak at the event.

Smith will deliver Tuesday’s luncheon keynote address, “Barbarians at Your Gate.” Smith has pledged to arm dealers with strategies to “keep the bad guys locked out and the profits locked in.”

Kurkin will conduct the event’s first workshop, “Dotting the ‘I’s: Cash Reporting, OFAC and Adverse Actions,” on Monday, Nov. 10 at 1:50 p.m. Kurkin represents the FADA as well as dealers, both as an advisor and litigator.

“Ted and Alex bring an unmatched level of expertise and enthusiasm to their work on behalf of Florida dealers,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Monthly and F&I and Showroom. “Their very presence guarantees an enormous takeaway for dealers who are able to attend Compliance Summit.”

The Florida event will be followed by regional events in the Midwest, South and West in 2015. Compliance Summit is expected to draw dealers as well as senior staff, sales and F&I personnel, compliance officers, general agents and more.
