Dealership Compliance Officer Training Meets Needs in Auto Industry

Share Article

The ADCO Seminar and Certification program, which focuses on the implementation of a dealership compliance management system (CMS), provides actionable guidance, training, best practices, and resources so attendees can take what they’ve learned and put it to work immediately at their dealerships. The program is designed for compliance officers, safety officers, human resources professionals, attorneys, and vendors that support compliance in the industry. In addition to the core CMS-based curriculum, ADCO programs include leadership development training.

“ADCO was formed to provide compliance officers with comprehensive support, including specialized resources for the diverse industry segments it serves,” said Robertson. In addition to the franchise and independent vehicle dealers, ADCO serves RV, recreational and marine dealers.

The Association of Dealership Compliance Officers (ADCO) will conduct its first virtual Seminar and Certification Oct. 20-22, 2020. The online event reflects a move from an onsite venue. According to Linda Robertson, SPHR, executive director and corporate president of ADCO, “Moving to a virtual event hasn’t changed our speaker lineup or program content. Attendees will be able to interact with presenters and other participants. As with our onsite events, the virtual Seminar and Certification will culminate in the administration of the Dealership Compliance Officer Professional certification exam.”

“Operating in today’s highly regulated environment requires dealers to have a formal CMS to satisfy standards imposed by federal and state regulators,” said Robertson. “Compliance officers face a daunting task. Dealerships must comply with over 60 major federal regulations, each of which imposes hundreds of rules. The regulations impact every operational unit, from human resources, sales, and financial services to the service bay.”

The ADCO Seminar and Certification program is accredited for CLE by the State Bar of Texas and is a registered sponsor for Texas CPE. SHRM recertification credits are pending.

Speakers for this event include Eric Johnson, JD, Partner, Hudson Cook, LLP; Terrence O’Loughlin, JD, MBA, Director of Compliance, Reynolds Document Solutions, Reynolds & Reynolds; Randy Henrick, JD, President, Randy Henrick & Associates; Marcia Nelson Jackson, JD, Partner, Wicks Phillips; EJ Shelby, National Director of Sales, ComplyNet; Melinda Levy, JD, Levy Law; Judy Vann Karstadt, President, JV Solutions; Sandy Zannino, Founder, and CEO, Innovative Auto HR; and Stephanie Licata, MA, ACC, Purpose, and Performance Group.

A for-profit Subchapter S Corporation, ADCO draws on the legal guidance of Hudson Cook, LLP, and other qualified providers. It operates under the direction of a Board of Directors and the guidance of an Advisory Council whose members include leaders and experts in related fields of compliance and the motor vehicle industry.
