Additional Information

Exhibitors are not entitled to make a presentation during the training program. An Exhibitor may, however, propose to make a presentation on an appropriate training topic, and the Local Program Committee will consider the proposal on its merits. The presentation may not be about the Exhibitor’s organization or its clients or projects. The topic should be technical and topical, not closely related to the exhibitor’s organization. If the presentation is approved, the person making the presentation may not be the person that staffs the Exhibitor’s table. Please contact Executive Director Ron Calvosa if you are interested in speaking at the conference.

Because the AIG is a membership organization of inspectors general offices that are responsible for monitoring government activities to ensure compliance with all applicable policies, procedure, rules and laws – including ethics provisions; in order to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest, it is the Association’s policy that Exhibitors are only permitted to distribute items of nominal value (i.e. pens, magnets etc.) to attendees at their exhibition tables. Exhibitors are not authorized to engage in raffles or to otherwise provide meals and drinks to AIG Board Members and other event attendees.

The Association of Inspectors General (“AIG”) is a national 501©3 organization of federal, state, and locally appointed individuals affiliated with Offices of Inspectors General. The AIG seeks to foster and promote public accountability and integrity in the general areas of prevention, examination, investigation, audit, detection, elimination and prosecution of fraud, waste and abuse, through policy research and analysis; standardization of practices, policies, conduct and ethics; encouragement of professional development by providing and sponsoring educational programs; and the establishment of professional qualifications, certifications, and licensing.

Exhibitor tables are positioned based upon exhibitor level and past support.
