Agenda

Re-Defining a Hands-On Experience

Exclusive Opportunities to Learn

No need to take feverish notes or try to remember every strategy you heard, technique you learned, and recommendations you gathered from industry experts. At the BasisCode Compliance Consortium, not only do attendees have access to exclusive takeaways from our sessions post-conference, they also have access to in-person Q+As with our experts during the day – with chances to implement learnings on the spot.

Choose From Two Unique Tracks

Uniquely designed to offer two programming tracks. Attendees can choose to join the Industry Conference Track, which focuses on educational presentations designed to tackle your toughest compliance challenges. In the BasisCode User Track, attendees can focus on how to apply best technology practices to your own programs using the BasisCode Compliance™ platform.
