Compliance Council


Chief Compliance Officers address issues that affect the retail industry and its vast scope of transactions, customers, employees, locations, and modes of media as well as companies’ ethical culture and legal compliance with a wide variety of federal and state laws covering many legal areas.  

The leading retailers are subject to a wide range of federal, state and local statutory and regulatory requirements affecting all aspects of operations, including wage and hour, licensing, environmental, ethical and financial reporting. Our members are increasingly focusing on compliance issues and the challenges associated with building effective retail-specific compliance programs.  
RILA's Compliance Council is composed of companies' chief compliance officers and the business and legal executives that have primary responsibility for oversight of their company’s compliance programs.  
Headed by a leadership team made up of RILA members, the Compliance Council provides an opportunity for members to benchmark at an executive level on strategic issues related to the implementation, management, and oversight of retail corporate compliance programs. The Compliance Council's activities include in-person meetings, benchmarking surveys, focused benchmarking calls, and educational webinars.
