GDPR: How and Why It’s Going to Change Your Organization Overnight
May 17, 2018

Date/Time:

Location:

Hilton Washington Dulles Airport

Description
The Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union policy that requires businesses to protect the privacy and personal data of EU citizens. This affects any business or organization anywhere in the world. If you have just one EU-based member, attendee, subscriber, or customer, you’re affected. As a planner, how does that affect your membership database, event registration, and other repositories of data that your organization holds?

Join us for a fascinating and informative program, which will feature attorneys who have been working to ensure that the organizations they represent are in full compliance by May 25, 2018. That’s only one week after our program.

We anticipate a large crowd, so sign up now. Please be aware of our policy of informing us if you need to cancel your reservation, so that we may offer your seat to someone on our waiting list.
