Dispatches From SCCE 2022

The Society of Corporate Compliance & Ethics held its 2022 conference in Phoenix this week, with nearly 1,000 compliance professionals gathering from all corners to talk shop, schmooze over drinks, accept knickknacks from vendors, and otherwise support our glorious corporate compliance community.

Sadly, I could not attend this year due to personal commitments keeping me at home. As usual, however, we have a collection of social media dispatches to give everyone a sense of who was there, what was discussed, and how much fun was had.

The conference opened with a keynote presentation from Aditi Nerukar, a professor of public health who studies stress, resilience, and mental health. Now why on earth would those things be relevant to compliance officers…


Nerukar offered several observations about how the pandemic has changed our lives and how we must change in response to keep ourselves sane and sharp. This one I practice by walking around the block every morning.


Lots of sessions about the nitty-gritty of running a compliance program, such as this about anti-retaliation efforts.


The eight mindsets of communication; not to be confused with the 10 hallmarks of an effective compliance program or the five elements of the COSO cube.


Ah yes, the board’s desire to strangle someone when an ethics or compliance lapse explodes in everyone’s face.


More on resilience, and how compliance officers can maintain it during a crisis.


Not all the action happened in conference sessions! Plenty of dinners, drinks, and parties were afoot too.



Wise words from Adam Turtletaub, chief strategy and engagement officer for SCCE.
