NAFUSA’s Annual Conference will be held at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay, California, March 29-31, 2023.

NAFUSA is excited to announce that United States Deputy Attorney General (DAG) Lisa Monaco has confirmed her appearance as keynote speaker for the Friday night (3/31) conference dinner in Half Moon Bay.

She will be joining for cocktails and dinner that evening so that she will have an opportunity to meet and talk to as many conference attendees as possible. Ms. Monaco is the 39th DAG and is the second-highest ranking official in the Department. She is a veteran of the DOJ and has served as a federal prosecutor and in several leadership positions across the Department.

In addition to the DAG on Friday evening, DEA Administrator Anne Milgram will be the luncheon keynote speaker on Thursday, March 30. Ms. Milgram was sworn in as DEA Administrator on June 28, 2021, after being confirmed by the United States Senate by unanimous consent. As Administrator she leads an agency of more than 10,000 who work in 239 offices across the United States and 92 foreign offices.

On Friday morning, NAFUSA member and celebrated author Kent Alexander will be interviewed by past NAFUSA president and author Paul Coggins about Alexander’s book “The Suspect,” the book on which the 2019 Clint Eastwood movie “Richard Jewell” was based.

The full conference program will also include a panel on corporate compliance issues. NAFUSA board member Greg Brower will moderate an expert panel, including Fortune 500 Chief Compliance Officers and a DOJ official, who will discuss recent developments in corporate compliance generally and, specifically, how the DOJ evaluates corporate compliance programs and how outside counsel can best advise corporate clients on how to meet DOJ expectations.
