attendee comments

I depend upon my partners in compliance, NRS, to keep me informed + updated on rule changes from myriad regulatory entities. Their Spring and Fall compliance conferences are instrumental in this process. Knowledgeable speakers are willing to share their expertise and always have with take- aways and a to do list. I make it a priority to attend at least one NRS conference each year! - NRS Spring 2018 Conference Attendee

NRS provides a class-act conference geared towards arming the compliance professional with tools and resources. - NRS Spring 2018 Conference Attendee
