JUNE 9, 2011: The 2011 Professional Regulation Conference by Lovett & Westmacott and Ng Ariss Fong is sold out, and we are sorry that we cannot add more seats.

The Conference will include in-depth, practical sessions on registration and fitness, complaints, inquiries and extraordinary hearings, disciplinary hearings, appeals, and reviews, and a panel of regulators from a cross-section of professions discussing the challenges they have overcome and are currently facing. A detailed Agenda (updated May 16) is available here.
