The topic of Charlie’s discussion is Off-Channel Communications.  This interactive group discussion will focus on issues related to off-channel communications for small to medium-size firms. This moderated discussion will focus on best practices and approaches firms have taken related to off-channel communications and the growing list of available tools and technologies.

“With the regulatory attention focused on off-channel communications,” offers Charlie Weeden, “not only should compliance officers be proactive in managing these complex platforms but also incorporate policies in which employees attest that they will comply with such policies.”
