Assume you are a compliance program manager (and sole compliance professional) of a small public company, “DogsTogs” that makes and sells canine attire. The company is growing quickly, and since you seem to have a firm grasp on compliance, your boss, the CFO, would potentially like to promote you to the position of Head of Compliance. But first, she would like you to propose to her the structure you think the company should have for compliance.
She has asked you to draft an email to her and the General Counsel outlining:
to whom you think you should report and why, and
if you think the company needs an official Compliance Committee.
If you believe it does need such a Committee, who do you think the members should be, and how often should they meet?
