Event overview

As the nation's principal economic regulator, the ACCC is responsible for a wide variety of enforcement, compliance, education and policy activities across numerous industries. How are decisions made in the agency? What should companies know about how to best engage with the regulator? What are the ACCC's current priority issues, and what are likely to be the most important ones going forward? Are there any particular WA matters the regulator is looking at? Join us for a lunchtime conversation with ACCC Deputy Chair, Dr Michael Schaper. 

This briefing is by invitation only to CEDA Trustees. Trustees are senior leaders nominated by CEDA member organisations. At CEDA boardroom briefings our Trustees hear from an informed, expert guest speaker in a private, small group setting. Invitations to boardroom briefings are a valued benefit of a CEDA membership. The Chatham House Rule applies.
