“JVC’s Legal Compliance DVD series is the natural companion to JVC’s compliance handbooks and our USA PATRIOT Act Compliance Kit (PACK) for AML program development, said Cecilia Gardner, JVC’s president, chief executive officer, and general counsel. “Jewelers have been asking JVC to develop a DVD series on a wide range of important topics and JVC has responded with two information-rich DVDs that can be purchased together or individually.”

She added, “JVC developed this DVD series in response to jewelers’ requests for up-to-the- minute legal compliance information that will be easy to access and to understand.”

Gardner presents legal compliance education seminars to jewelers across the United States and represents the industry’s needs before the government agencies that govern how the industry does business. These DVDs are a film of gardner speaking to an audience of jewelry industry members in Chicago.

GE Money sponsored the making of the DVD. The JCK Industry Fund provides funding for legal compliance outreach programs.

JVC member pricing is $15 for one DVD and $25 for the two-DVD set. Pricing for non-JVC members is $20 for one DVD and $30 for the two-DVD set. To purchase JVC’s Legal Compliance and AML DVDs, and for information on JVC’s products and services, visit JVC’s Web site.
