NEW ORLEANS — Organizers of the annual Compliance Summit, in conjunction with Industry Summit and P&A Leadership Summit, will once again offer ACE’s Automotive Compliance Specialist certification. This year’s event will be held Nov. 4–6 at the New Orleans Marriott, with the ACE review and exam set for Tuesday, Nov. 5.

“ACE is pleased to again be invited to offer our certification program to Industry Summit attendees,” said Gil Van Over, executive director of ACE. “The Automotive Compliance Specialist certification is well-tailored for the needs of most attendees: It gives a thorough, yet high-level overview of the major legal themes that impact the F&I industry, both at the dealership and TPA level.”

ACE certification is open to all attendees including auto dealers and dealership personnel as well as agents, auto finance executives, and F&I product providers and administrators. Automotive Compliance Specialist certification was designed in part to inform conversations among dealers and agents concerning the structure and execution of necessary compliance practices.

“Those who complete the certification will leave with an awareness of the issues that impact the industry so they can spot potential land mines without being expected to defuse them,” Van Over added.

To earn ACE certification, Industry Summit attendees must be present for a comprehensive review session that will begin promptly at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 5, and earn a passing grade on the exam that follows. Those who succeed will get a framed diploma and opportunities to renew their certification on an annual basis.

More details about Industry Summit 2019, including the agenda and final registration details, will become available in the weeks ahead. To discuss sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, contact David Gesualdo via email or at 727-947-4027.
