We, Customer Expressions, will be sending a team down to Chicago to attend the Annual Compliance & Ethics Institute, hosted by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics. The conference runs from September 12-15 and features presentations from chief compliance and ethics officers, CEOs, certified compliance and ethics professionals, lawyers, compliance analysts and many other professionals in the field of ethics, compliance and risk management. While we are away, we will be blogging from the event and interviewing industry professionals.
Some of the topics being addressed at the conference this year include:
- Ethics Policy and Program Development
- International Compliance Issues
- Benchmarking and Best Practices in Ethics and Compliance
- Compliance Training
- Internal Investigations
- Maintaining FCPA Compliance
- Trends and the Future of Ethics and Compliance
This year’s conference is a very unique one for us at Customer Expressions, as our company president, Ray Gerard will be presenting a breakout session with Lyn Scrine, Ethics Director at Allstate. The two of them will be discussing investigation systems and how to implement them into the workplace. Joe Gerard, Vice President at Customer Expressions, stated:
“Over the past two years, we’ve completed global implementations of i-Sight for managing employee relations, ethics , privacy , compliance and security investigations. Ray Gerard, President at CEC, will be presenting at the conference this year alongside Lyn Scrine, Ethics Director at Allstate- which is an extremely exciting opportunity for us. This year, we look forward to engaging with industry professionals to learn more about their needs during challenging economic times, to continue to meet the growing demands of ethics and compliance professionals.”
SCCE’s Annual Compliance & Ethics Institute is the primary education and networking event for professionals working in the compliance and ethics profession across all industries around the world. Sessions at the 2009 conference will offer the latest compliance information on hot topics and current events.

Pre-Conference Sessions will be presented on Sunday, September 12, 2010. The day will be divided into two longer sessions: morning sessions and afternoon sessions. The longer timeframe allows for in-depth discussion and interaction to cover the topics in more detail. Post-Conference Workshops will be completed on Wednesday, September 15, 2010. The sessions are four hour interactive work-shops designed to cover some of the most important and timely topics in ethics and compliance.
This year the SCCE has added an additional track for those wishing to focus on risk management. The risk management track will focus on topics including conflict of interest, internal investigations, data privacy, risk management and mergers and acquisitions.
