Dispatches From SCCE 2019

Nearly 1,900 compliance professionals have descended on National Harbor in Maryland this week for the Society of Corporate Compliance Ethics’ 2019 conference. It’s all that you’d expect, with jam-packed panel discussions, interesting keynote speeches, and lots of token gifts from compliance vendors of all stripes. 

I’ll try to write up some summary posts in days to come. Meanwhile, here are some dispatches from social media to give you a flavor of what’s going on here. 


First, SCCE shared the venue this year with an  Air Force cybersecurity convention. We thank them for their service, and kinda wish we could sneak into some of their sessions, too.


I was honored this year to moderate an interview with Dr. Kurt Michels, global head of compliance at Volkswagen, to hear about how the company has been trying to reform its corporate culture over the last several years.


Some nice tips here for conducting an investigation with cross-border reach, plus a  standard-issue hotel chandelier.


Nice repackaging of what ethics and compliance functions really do, from Jonathan Rutsch of DTG Risk & Compliance.


Alas, I’m not sure how many leaders measure up to this talent goal as laid out by Michael Horowitz, inspector general at the U.S. Department of Justice. (A thankless job if ever there was one.)


Now if we could only eliminate bad bias with a Lipitor prescription…


You may need to squint, but some good organizational lessons here from the head of compliance at Odebrecht.


We tried to clear away the haze on this subject. We failed; it is as cutting-edge compliance as you can get right now.




You can find many more posts on Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media sites using the hashtag #SCCEcei. Congratulations to SCCE for hosting another excellent conference, and good luck to all taking the CCEP certification exams this week, too.
